Kempfield On The Millers - Sept. 19
I hit the Kempfield Pool at 4pm on Saturday afternoon to find that I was the 6th one there soon to be part of a group of 8 that were working this great section. It was like fishing the Farmington - lots of anglers and lots of rising browns. First, there was a great hatch of BWO's being blown around by the wind. Soon the wind let up and a large mayfly appeared. I'd like to call it the "white fly" but I'll refrain from that. It was white for sure but a bit smaller than the famous white fly. The browns began a steady attack on this insect until the air was full of what looked like a pumkin caddis. I was covered with them!!
I took three good browns and lost three others. It was a good three hours on the Millers. The best dry fly fishing of the year is RIGHT NOW. Don't miss it.
