The End Of The Swift!!
No, there wasn't a spill or a fish kill. Today I decided to do some exploring, sans fly rod and waders. The aim was to check out the lower, LOWER Swift and to find where it joined waters with the Ware River. The above photo shows the junction of these two rivers. It's a nice pool. The flow of the Swift meets the Ware head on creating a beautiful drift line that seems to last forever. Below the junction there is a nice set of riffles. Above the junction the Ware offers nice, nice dry fly water. The Swift's cold flow should provide sanctuary for some of those Ware River browns that we hear about. Maybe or maybe not but it was worth the trip. I'll be back to this spot next Summer for sure!!!
More time was spent exploring this lower Swift River and it included me spying on some rising trout! As expected there was nobody there except me and the trout.
Tomorrow morning I'll be working the Swift with some new creations. Will they work? As I said earlier - maybe or maybe not.
We could get out first snow within two or so weeks. Fish Now!!
