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.

Where Have I Been


Where have I been over the last two weeks?

First, I got MARRIED and then spent the better part of a week in Bermuda. My wonderful wife and I spent days just enjoying the wonderful climate of this sunny island (80 degrees every day)and just doing what newly weds do. I did not go fishing BUT I met a good guide for bones and tarpon which is on the list for next year. I plan to be there.

It took less than 24 hours for me to get a three weight in my hands after we touched down. The Swift (yesterday) was sublime with just the right amount of Swift frustration to bring back reality. I took two bows from the gauge downstream until I ran into Dan (the best flyfisher on the Swift) who was working the occasional sippers below the Pipe. He caught some and missed some just as I did in that area. My #20 bwo rose some, landed two but most of the time the trout rose and then refused the fly. I also hooked some tiny (4-6 inch) brookies that seem to be everywhere. This has happened over the last two months. Hatchery escapees? I don't think so.

So, who is this woman that I'm involved with? She's GREAT! She's also very good with a tenkara rod, VERY GOOD. She loves the Swift and loves when I fly fish and guide. I'm a lucky guy!!

I also went to the EB and did nothing in three hours today. It's on the Fall stocking list but.... Does anyone know anything about the EB.

Fall is here. October and November are great months especially on the Swift as they always are.

Keep Fishing!!

Congratulations Ken on your marriage. Happiness is a great thing!

Now back to fly fishing :)

I am headed to Millers on Monday or is it too low to fish? If not what is working there this time of year?

How is the Wendell stretch fishing? Anyone?? We all know Ken is still in the honeymoon phase ;)

Looking for a mid day excursion, drop the kids off at school around 730/8, arrive up there by 930, fish until 2-3, and head home...

Looking to swing some streamers and drift some nymphs, but any word on October Caddis or other dries? Also what's biting? Haven't fished that stretch in nearly 2 years, haven't done much fishing this year and looking to get back out there.

Let me know!!
Tight Lines,


Tony

I can say that quite a few rainbows were caught last Saturday by myself and a few others I spoke to indicating that the Wendell stretch was stocked the week before. I only know of one brown caught however(kempfield pool).
Good luck,
Ernie

Anthony Nigro said...

Ernie what were you tossing at them?

Why do I feel like I'm admitting to something?

The flows on the Millers are perfect right now. Any WB will catch the rainbows that were stocked recently BUT we should be having some good surface action on any warm cloudy day. Watch the deep pool just below the Kempfield Trestle. It's a favorite Fall spot for me.
