Battenkill 4/28/18

The water on the Battenkill is very high, which is no surprise given the rain. Fishing along River Rd through Route 7A in Sunderland and Arlington would be difficult with a spinning rod and nearly impossible with a fly rod. Water depth in these locations  makes wading pretty dangerous. After checking out a few spots I headed upstream to Union St. where the water was more manageable. Depth wasn’t a problem but the fast current made getting a fly down deep enough challenging.

Over the next few days conditions will probably hold steady. The forecast calls for more rain, but hopefully by the end of the week conditions will be more manageable. Water temp is still fairly cold. Once it warms a little the fish should get active.
