Autumn On The EB

Autumn On The EB
Fly Fishing The Millers - With over 30 years of fly fishing this river I will claim more knowledge and fish caught than anyone. There are over 40 miles of river and I will take you to the best sections and if you want to sections that never see another angler. Don't be fooled by those who say the Millers is a Spring and Fall river. I'll show you how to have great Summer action. The "EB of the Westfield" - Wild and beautiful is the only way to describe this river. There's a lot of water here but I know where to go to catch trout. After a trip you will too!! Solitude and trout IS the EB. The Swift - 20 trout days are not uncommon on this river if you know what to do and use. I'll show the way and you catch the trout.

Fly Fish The Millers NOW

The last two weeks on the Millers have been dream like. Lots of very eager browns chasing caddis and mayflies (march browns and sulphur-very early for sulphurs) which has resulted in very good dry fly action. It's wonderful to shed the dreaded wooley bugger and that beadhead stuff to chase trout with soft hackles and dry flies. The water is low but still in the '50's. As I have said before- day time fishing will last through the first half of June and then it becomes the realm of the "evening hatch" which will last through the summer.
The browns will always be with us but they have to be catered to. Keep an eye open for the large stoneflies which should be entering center stage shortly. In short- get out there!!!! Large stonefly nymphs when nothing is working the surface, soft hackle flies (olive body and dark partridge hackle) when you see surface action and then the apporpriate dry when the surface action goes crazy.
Catch tout and enjoy it.
