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 Millers (finally) On Labor Day Weekend


Friday night (Sept 4th) found me on the Kempfield Pool with flows around 470cfs. The rocks were barely a ripple on the water's surface but conditions after this very wet summer were good enough. I took five browns, all on emergers, and they were all very difficult fish. It was an evening of bulging rises, all dorsals and tails and it was a reeducation after casting to the willing 'bows of the Westfield. I had one young angler for company at the beginning and another by evening's end. That was it for angling traffic.

Foreward cast to early monday morning. The Swift was jammed with flyfishers and from what I've been told jammed with kayaks later in the day. What about the Millers? I couldn't swing an evening trip but mid day would work. It's also the time of day during the summer when one should stay away if one wants surface action but it would be the only game in town so off I went. Flows were in the mid 200cfs range and the Kemfield rocks were fully exposed. The result - one small brown on a parachute up against the far bank. The Upper Trestle looked great but produced a zero in the mid day sun.

Hopefully this river will stay down through the rest of the season. The browns are still there!!

I was on the Millers Sunday night. Hit down river from the Paper Mill and wrapped up at the Kempfield pool. Hatch was decent, looked like a small blue dun (entomology isn't my strong suit) and some #12 sulfers. Didn't see much at all for rises. Would have been skunked if it were not for a spunky smallie. Just a couple others on the river and they had about the same luck...one smallie.

I hope to make it down to the Millers Thursday or Friday evening. Those days are supposed to be cloudy. Maybe that will shake things up.

Was on the Miller's Monday AM along rte 2 and the Bridge Pool. Casting a dry along the bank, had a take , reeled in and low and behold... a Bluegill ???? Three more fish on but all broke off, and then finally landed a small bass.
Packed it in and went for breakfast at the Boxcar restaurant. Sure glad they are open again.
Cheers
