Morning at Tumblehead (Schroon River)

I fished the public access at Tumblehead this morning from to . 
12 trout (11 rainbows and 1 brown). 
The rainbows averaged 11-12 inches & were in good shape for Schroon River Stockies this time of the season   ie. they ain't dead yet!.    They all took a black bugger or a white wet fly fished 2 feet below the surface.  As typical for rainbows, the take was tenacious.  The fish are holding in the faster water.  Reaching the seams was critical for a good swinging presentation.  

This Little brown was the only fish to take a Stimulator fished dry.
Not much hatching in this morning.

  1. Chris, I am heading up to Schroon for the week tomorrow and after reading this blog am looking forward to hitting some stretches of the river in search of similar results. I am sure I could just ask when I get there, but where is Tumblehead Falls? Last year I fished the Starbuckville Dam with another enthusiast and we got blanked- Water temps were well into the 70's at that point of the summer. The year before that we fished the part north of the Lake and found out later that is not a very productive section.
