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.

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 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. 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.

With 2020 behind us lets hope 2021 is better for all of us. I want to thank each and every client who fished hard and worked for every bite, you guys are awesome. After a long fall season with low water, crowds and less fish around then we all would like it’s nice to take a break for a bit. My calendar for next fall is getting pretty full with everyone rebooking the same days, so if you want to book for the fall I highly suggest not waiting to long. I have a few things happening this year so be on the look out for some announcements. Stay safe and see everyone soon.

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

NYS has put a temporary ban on guiding in New York under the "PAUSE Executive Order" until further notice. While we have already stopped doing any trips before this went into effect for everyone's safety, we're still are booking trips for the fall. This it a tough time for all of us and I've been reaching to clients about their dates booked and deposits and I want to thank all my clients who have rescheduled or have been generous to allow me to keep the deposit. If you have any questions, or want to book a date for later this year please email, text or call me at (518) 495-2965. Thank you for your cooperation during this time.
