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 Swift - August 14th


Well, the flows were reading 215cfs for a couple of days which meant that some stability has finally settled on the Swift. The water is high but fishable so off I go. I would have suspected more cars in the "pipe" parking area at 5pm on a Friday night. There was only one other. The pipe was deserted. You could fish this place for years, even in the dead of winter, and never be alone.
I wasn't alone for long. The first flotilla, two rubber rafts and an inflatable CHAIR, sailored by four giggling girls, went drifting by. Fifteen minutes later a paddle comes floating by and hangs up at the "fallen tree". Ten minutes after that two dudes in kayaks appear. Only one has a paddle. I point out where the other paddle is, they thank me and then ask if I've seen "another" paddle. Sure enough, two more explorers in kayaks make their way onto the scene and yes, only one has a paddle. Finally they drift away. Maybe this is why I was alone at the "pipe" at prime time.
The fishing - I guarded one bank during the naval excersises and that long stretch of water yielded five 'bows, all good size and very full of fight. A size 16 serendipity was the fly used.
The photo above is of that beautiful stretch above the pipe. It's great dry fly water and should pick up when the flow drops another 50cfs.

Had the experience you had last week but no floating chair! It should be over by labor day.

The Millers has been fishing fine.
The water level is about perfect. The trout are accomodating and I haven't seen kayak in over a month.

I've seen the Millers in the mid 70 range in the afternoon on hot summer days. On a day like today (8/16) it doesn't come alive until dusk/dark.

Hey Ken - Any chance you could chat a little bit about technique in the course of your blogs for the benefit of newbies to fly fishing. So for example, with Emergers what type of fly is that, and how do you fish it - upstream or downstream, is there a retrival to it, or do you just let the current do it's thing, when do you most expect strikes and where would you position yourself relevant to where you think fish are holding? That said - completely understand if you rather not get into that.
Keep up the good work!
Joe.

Joe,

I've been working on something about my approach to emergers and the like.

Soon,

Ken
