Millers River Update - Thursday, May 21
Early last evening found me on the Millers for a great two hours. I first hit the stretch in Erving center just below the lower C&R boundry. Four rainbows came to the net courtesy of an olive soft hackle. All were caught about a 100 yards downstream from the bridge. I then went upstream to the Kempfield Run. The river was running about 500cfs which is easily wadable but just a bit high perfect dry fly action. About 7pm a nice hatch of sulphurs began to appear in the upper part of the run where the riffles smooth out to that beautiful glide. A few browns responded and I caught two with a sulphur comparadun. I would of stayed later but I had a very early start to today's work.
Tonight I tie some flies and tomorrow I'll make an early trip to the EB of the Westfield, a river that has baffled me and a number of others this Spring.
The Millers season has really started. Good flows, lots of caddis and mayflies and plenty of trout.
