Trout Spey Trips

By |January 13th, 2023|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , |

  Now booking spring and summer trout spey trips. You’ll catch fish in places you never thought they were before It never ceases to blow my mind where the occasional bite or hook up may come from. Generally in dry fly or indicator fishing, we have all been taught to focus on certain types of water depending on what we are trying to accomplish. While it is true that trout favor different types of water throughout the year, swinging flies has shown me that we may have been overlooking great fishing opportunities. Some of these instances have revealed themselves while trying to make a long cast to other side of the river. Instead of getting the bite on the bank, I’ve gotten the flash, bite, or hook up on in the middle of the fast water and even in rapids and wave trains. It has taught me to not only think about the surface currents but the depressions, currents, and structure underneath what we can see on the surface. Whether you're new to trout spey or an experienced angler looking to refine your skills-we offer full day trips to suit your needs. From swinging soft hackles on a scandi lines to swinging bigger flies on skagit lines we've got you covered. Swinging for trout is a great ways to keep up your skills for fishing anadromous species. Book your trip now and join me on the beautiful trout filled water New York has to offer.  All tackle provided if needed.

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.

TROUT Fishing on the Ausable has been very good recently, nymphing during the day or chasing hatches for some dry fly fun towards evening have been productive. The streams of central NY are fishing good as well and the Salmon River received  a small stocking of some Browns that have been fun to catch especially on trout spey rods. SALMON & STEELHEAD September thru early December dates are almost all gone if you haven't booked yours, don't wait.  Call, Text or Email.  518-495-2965 Paul

Trout Fishing Report

By |June 9th, 2015|Categories: Reports|Tags: , , , , , |

I was up on the Ausable River in Wilmington over the past week and the fishing was great, plenty of hatches coming off for the dry fly angler from mid day on and nymphing was good all day. Here are my clients tight line nymphing thru some very productive pocket water on the Ausable.  A #16 Frenchie and #8 Rubber Leg Stone Fly are a great set up on the Ausable, this nice Brown got fooled by the frenchie. I have limited dates left for trout fishing trips, if you would like to book one give me a call or click on the contact tab to e-mail me.
