Fishing Overview

 This fall has been one for the record books. Excellent fishing, and satisfied anglers all around. We were blessed with good temperatures, and good flows for most of the fall, allowing for consistent hatches and predictable feeding. Currently, the Ausable is fishing well with a variety of attractor flies, with BWO being the predominant hatch. Best in the late morning and evening. Fish straight through the day as you can feed fish at all hours and head to pocket water stretches if the flat water and pools are not active. I have been using lots of stoneflies fished in tandem with Caddis pupa for the past 3 weeks and have consistently caught fish on all rivers. Also switching in zug bugs and prince nymphs, and all sorts of streamers. BWO hatches have been fun with fish keyed into specific BWO profiles.     As always, call the fly shop for the most up to date and detailed information 518-946-2117

Specifics and Tips

  . Fish Hard! Two Days left until we are limited to the C&R sections! Small tippets and long leaders for the BWO hatches. some anglers have had to use 7x fairly often, with fish responding the change in a few casts. Nymph with 5x fluoro. Streamers are excellent in the fall to search for fish, and are all around wicked fun to fish!  For the best Specifics and Tips call us at the fly shop at 518-946-2117.
