With a week of above average temperatures and very little rain here in Alstead over the past week, the water is over 60 degrees right now. Hendrickson May Flies have been hatching in earnest with a small hatch of Yellow Sally Stoneflies happening simultaneously two evenings ago. The fish, however, are not looking up and I had now surface takes. The only fish willing, was a thick 15-inch rainbow caught on a wooly bugger.
