Swift River

Swift River
The Millers - Experience the best brown trout fly fishing in Massachusetts. This river only gets better as the Summer rolls on with Autumn being prime time!! Day long trips or "Evening Rise" excursions are available. There are over forty miles of river and I will take you to the "best" sections. I have over twenty years of experience on my "home" river. The "EB of the Westfield" - Wild and beautiful is the only way to describe the EB. There's a lot of water here but I know where to go when I want to catch trout!! After a trip you will too whether it's surface or subsurface action that you like. If it's a wilderness experience that you're looking for then let me take you to the "EB". The Swift - Let's "de-mystify" this river. 20 trout days, year round, are not uncommon on this river. It's technique and fly selection that counts. I can introduce you to that experience. "Dry Fly 101 - Dry fly fishing is the "soul" of fly fishing. The "fly fishing schools" will "scan" this method but I teach the classic upstream approach in depth. In over forty years of fly fishing I have caught more trout on a dry fly than with all other methods. I teach this method on "a river" so you can carry it forward season after season. RATES Full Day (7am-1pm) $150 per per person, $225 for two (lunch included) Evening Rise -(5:30 till dusk) $90 per person, $155 for two Dry Fly 101 - $60 for 3 hours

Tomorrow Is Thanksgiving Day

The EB started today at 160cfs. It's now at 1060cfs. The Millers is doing the same dance, from 150cfs to 1270cfs. We know what we have to do tomorrow - spend time with our family and friends and be thankful for another good year!

I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving and certainly many more!!

Thought that you would appreciate a month of May photo of me changing flies or trying to undo a wind knot. Take your pick!




don't eat to much bird. And then again it only comes once a year, so forget what I just said & enjoy the good food & family.

Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours............Phil

Bearsden rd is in good shape and you can drive right down to Rezendes essentially. You cant miss the parking area and TU sign, its at the very end of Bearsden. Just be sure to use Gulf rd from the South Royalston side as it turns too rough immediately after bearsden road. (at least for my little sedan.)

Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I happen to be in the Berkshires for the holiday and fished for a couple of freezing hours in the Housey. Water was off color, but not entirely blown out because it was so low before the rain. Fishing was bad, or at least fisherman was bad :) Swung some bright streamers and only got a scraggly half dead smallie. The deep holes on the Housy hold big browns all winter. Back to Swift.
