Battenkill

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Water is warming up and hatches and feeding fish are picking back up especially in the evening right at sundown. As always on the kill long leaders/tippets are the rule for fooling these wary fish. Absolutely drag free drift on a spinner pattern at dusk will hook you a few fish if you're patient.

Seven-day forecast 

River is at near perfect level right now. As long as we don't get another ton of rain this week we should have a good run of great conditions. Sulphurs are in full swing with some great dry fly action being reported up and down the river
