Re: What flies to use along the Connecticuit River in July?
You're going to want flies for smallmouth bass in the CT River and the lower stretches of it's tributaries.
Vermont is a no lead/ no felt state too.
The Deerfield river in northern MA and it's east branch in VT are tail waters and should have some good trout fishing still in July
I've fished the upper West River near Weston ( just west of Grafton) in the summer too along with a couple of the trout ponds in the national forest off the Kelley-Stand Rd
