Trout Fishing

By |May 15th, 2024|Categories: Reports|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

  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.         ​

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

Ausable Report

By |June 1st, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

  The West Branch of the Ausable has been fishing pretty good  recently.  Water flows are dropping to summer time lows, water temps are mid 50's-60 still.  Tight line nymphing has been the most productive technique by far, getting down and dirty with nymphs has produced some incredible client days along with some quality fish. Best patterns nymphing have been: Frenchie, Pat's Rubber Leg Stone, Sexy Walts worm and a Rainbow Warrior in sizes 8 to 16.   Looking to book a trip, contact us here.

Trout Fishing Report

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.
