Water Flow: 1780 cfs and dropping Water Temp: 50-55 Hatches:  BWO's, Hendrickson's, Stoneflies. Fishing on the West Branch of the Ausable is comparable to early spring conditions.  Concentrate on close to the bank in the pocket water with bigger nymphs ( Pats' Rubber Leg, Mop's and hotspot attractor patterns.  Streamers tied on  jig hooks with tungsten bead jigged and stripped have been working well in the deep soft water.

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.
