Fishing Report: Battenkill, 7/25/2015
I put in almost four hours this morning. The water level is definitely low, but the temperature seemed ok for this time of year. After trying some different tackle rigs the winning combination seemed to be a leader 10-12ft. long with a size 18 griffith’s gnat. I had a few strikes, missed some, hooked into two fish but only landed one. The nymph rig and streamers off a sink-tip line didn’t produce anything. Overall there wasn’t much rise activity, and, not surprisingly, most of it was in pools and along shaded banks. The air temp. was very pleasant early on, but by 10am the sun was getting mighty toasty. I almost wished I had gone with shorts and sandals instead of waders.
