More On the Swift River

Well, It's been four trips to the Swift in the last eight days and all of them have been very interesting. First, I haven't used anything larger than a size 18 and that was just for a very short time. Second, serendipities in hot red have produced very well as has tiny scud patterns. There's been some decent dry fly fishing using black emergers in sizes 20 and 22. All of this takes some of the sting out of not being on the Millers which has been very high for the last two weeks. The Millers should be fishable this weekend but the little Swift has been so good as of late that I might give the Millers another week. We'll see.

One more thing. It seems that most of the fishing on the Swift is centered around the "Y" Pool and the Hatchery Pipe. I'm guilty of that too but I've been exploring a bit. The above photo is the beautiful stretch above the old crib dam. Check it out.
