Hatches and flies for the Upper Connecticut River New Hampshire
Be certain you have a variety of streamers, especially if you plan on fishing for Landlocked
Salmon. Traditional flies like the Gray Gost and Wooley Buggers are popular.
Be prepared to fish several mayfly and caddisfly hatches when you are pursuing trout in the
Upper Connecticut River. Our hatch chart will give you a detailed estimate of when each
Blue-winged Olives hatch for much of the season starting in the early season with another
hatch coming in late August and early September. The March Browns start hatching in May.
The Hendricksons follow about two weeks later with sparse hatches in some sections. The
Light Cahills usually hatch starting about the first of June. The Hexagenia species hatch in
late July through the first of August. Sulphurs start about the first of August. Never forget the
midges. The river has a huge population of them and they can be the most important insect
to imitate at certain times of the season.
Caddisflies are very plentiful for most of the season. The Little Black Caddis are the first
ones to appear in late April to early May. The Cinnamon Caddisflies start hatching in late
May and last through August. Green Sedges also hatch starting in June and last through
July. There are several other species of caddisflies of minor importance.
Don't overlook the terrestrial insects. Beetles, ants and grass hoppers are popular flies to
use during the late summer and early fall.
