Rapid River with Doug Harp

Had a nice two night fishing adventure with Doug Harp.  Left Hanover Sunday afternoon and tried our luck at the Androscoggin River below Errol, NH.  Drifted nymphs, mostly prince and copper johns, switched to buggers and muddlers with no results. Off to Errol and a good early dinner and early to bed at the classic fishing motel, the Errol. Met up with guide Kris Thompson on the Rapid River road at 6 am Monday.  Fished the Rapid at Middle Dam.  Doug landed a nice 21″ salmon.  We both caught other salmon and trout. Size #18 black nymphs and #18 green nymphs were working.  Dropped down to fish the crib works at lower dam and also long pool. Water was very low.  We both caught fish, but  not as plentiful as earlier trips to the area.  Went back up to “pondy” which proved to be “crowded.” Waved to Aldro French on the way by his place.  Finished the day on the Magalloway River.  Again, low water, pouring rain, and few fish.  Always learn the rivers with Kris.
