Trout Fishing

  Trout fishing remains good throughout CNY and Adirondacks. There has been plenty of bugs coming off for the dry fly fisherman and early mornings the nymphing/streamer game is really good.  We've been floating the West Canada Creek recently and having some good days. For the trout spey angler swinging #10 -#14 soft hackles and been the ticket on a clear intermediate poly leader in the faster riffles when there is no active bugs. Once the hatch starts you can target rising fish swinging wet flies with a mono leader.   Interested in booking a trip, click here or call/text 518-495-2965.         ​

Fall Steelhead

        Terry with one of many on a recent trip   Steelhead season is in full swing now and with the recent snow on the ground and flows increasing its setting up for a great rest of the season.  Swinging flies has been pretty consistent now with number of fish in the river. I'd say 90% of my clients are changing over to swinging flies and taking on the challenge of trying to catch a steelhead the hardest way to catch one.  Nothing like swinging down a run with a fresh blanket of snow on the ground.

Trout Fishing

Trout fishing is pretty good on the West Branch Ausable as well as the West Canada Creek.  Euro Nymphing, Dry Fly or swinging flies with a trout spey are all producing plenty of fish. Looking to book a trip, give me a call, text or shoot me a email.

Steelhead Season Is A Wrap

Steelhead Season is a wrap.  I'd like to thank all my clients who fished with me this season and looking forward for fishing with you next season on the Salmon River. I'll be guiding on the West Canada Creek as well as the West Branch of the Ausable til mid summer.  Also if you're looking to get into the "Trout Spey" game give me a call and we can talk about a trip.
