Survival Rate of Housatonic Trout this summer
I'm really hoping we get some substantial rain in Ct.....It seems like the Housy has been hovering around 150 cfs with warm water temps. I can't help but think this may be a repeat of the recent summer where it was estimated the housy lost 90% of its trout. I stopped by to look at it this past Saturday while on my way to fish the Farmington......interestingly I saw numerous rises going on in the State Park - not sure if they were trout or fallfish/bass I was happy that I didn't see anyone flyfishing. we'll keep our fingers crossed.
I fished it at 800. It must look like a gravel pit at 150.
I hope they sit in the thermal refuge areas. It would be a shame since it fished great trhis spring.
