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, The Swift And Maybe The Perfect Storm!


It's late October and the fly fishing experiences have been sublime. The Millers has been great for the past month and if the flows stay low the fishing, especially on the surface, will be good. But there are changes on the way! We are looking at a large coastal storm for Sunday night through Tuesday which could (will) put an end to the fly fishing season on this river. Once the flows go up in the Fall on this river they STAY UP!! Dredge the bottom if you like but....

The Swift - Storm Irene and the late October snowstorm of 2011 finally caused the Quabbin to overflow EXACTLY at the time that the landlockes and lakers were at the surface looking to spawn. These fish followed the current over the spillway and gave us months of great fly fishing. Will this predicted storm produce the same event? Who knows?? It's all in the timing. Stay tuned to this blog for information. If we don't have a "landlocked season" we will still have a "winter trout season" on this great river!!

Hey Ken,

I concur, picked up another fine kettle just above the UTD pool this past weekend. Most came to a Kate MacLaren either mid dead drift or dabbled back upstream. Mostly stockers but again a couple that appeared to be holdover browns.
Hopefully Sandy is more bluster than rain...

Sandy left scarcely a blip on the Swift River flow. Dreams of lakers and salmon over the spillway will wait till spring.

The flow's cranking on the West Branch of the Swift. Dreams of salmon just starting on that little gem...
