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. I have limited dates available in June (I'm taking a fishing vacation to Montana at the end of the month ;-) ) and early July. If you haven't booked your dates for the Fall on the Salmon River, don't wait I have very few open dates thru early December, below is what I have open. September 14,15. October 26,27.

Good hatches of bugs have been coming off just about every stream I have fished this year providing good dry fly action. Early in the morning when there has been no hatches we have been nymphing with good success. I will be up on the West Branch of the Ausable in Wilmington for the month of June if your looking to get out on the water give me a call (518) 495-2965 or email me at email@example.com
