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. RATES - Full Day (6 hours) = $150.00 for one, $225 for two (lunch included). Half Day (three hours) $90.00 for one, $155.00 for two. Beginners Class - 3 hours ffor $90.00, all use of rods lines, reels included.

The Kempfield Pool Again

Thursday night, June 4th, found me back at the Kempfield Pool on the Millers. I shared the stretch with Al from Mansfield and we both caught fish. Everything was perfect. The water level was in the 300cfs range and the bright sky of mid day became blurred by cloud cover by 6pm. I fished dries and took 8 browns again and broke off 2 more. The largest, taken at the head of the large rocks at the beginning of the main pool, was a dark holdover fish of 18 inches. The killer fly was a size 16 dark olive cdc comparadun. I left at 8pm feeling very good about the last three hours.

Back at the car I met a fellow from Worcester who was knocking them dead just below the Wendell bridge. Al had fished the Upper Trestle Pool earlier and caught fish. GET OUT THERE AND FISH!!!!

BTW, the above photo is of the Millers River in Erving just above Farley Flats. The top part of the visible river is the end of the C&R section and the lower river is just above the trestle at the flats. The photo was taken at the top of Rattlesnake Mt. after a nice hike. One does not live by flyfishing alone, at least most of the time.

Kempfield pool,eh? Now you've got my blood boiling. I'll be there soon. Thanks for all the great info on the Millers.

Been picking them up here and there but no big days. Looking forward to a copy of the Guide.

Anyone have any news on the One Fly Contest?`

I don't know anything about the one fly contest. I'm not too much into fishing derbies. I've gotten good reports from all over the Millers River especially in the lower river around Erving.

Would someone kindly direct me to the Kempfield Pool and the best access to the river? I assume I will be getting there via Wendell Depot. Many thanks.
