What A Difference A Day Makes!!!
It was a perfect day on the Millers. Thursday, June 11th was cool with a hint of mist rolling off the ridges that border the lower river. The air was full of tiny BWO's and large tan caddis and the trout were giving chase. The most important thing was that the river was flowing at 250cfs. The fellows that I guided took trout everywhere - Erving Bridge, the Upper Trestle, the Kempfield Pool. It didn't matter.
Now forward cast 24 hours to Friday the 12th. Overnight rains swell the Millers to 1000cfs by mid afternoon. Now the rains of last night blow the river past 1500cfs!! My guess is that the river will be in a bait fishing, hardware slinging mode for a week. Keep an eye on the links that I provide to various flow rates. When the Erving section gets into the mid 500 range then you will have good wading and surface action.
Time to go to the Swift!!
