Millers, Swift and EB Update
OK, It's time to start fishing until the ice begins to form next Winter. It's almost May so there are no excuses except when the water levels go nuts as they have on the Millers. We will have more rain within 24 hours of this writing so watch the gauges on this blog especially for the Millers. To get a good read on the EB check the gauge reading for the WEST BRANCH OF THE WESTFIELD. It is dam free and a few miles from the EB. The gauge isn't effected by a dam. If the water is dropping on the West Branch then it is dropping in the C&R section of the EB!!
The Millers - The annual stock of browns is scheduled for May 2nd. Before that moron from Winchendon howls about me talking about mentioning STOCKING when I have said that I will not LET ME JUST SAY that I have worked long and hard to get AND keep browns in this river for over 25 years. I'm also proud of this accomplishment, having scheduled the event for 5 years and have mentioned this event over the last 7 years that I've written this blog. It's the reason that the Millers fishes so well through the season. BTW, I'm told that TU is continuing to work this event again - very good!!!
The Swift - Lots of fish. I've seen them, caught them and my clients have done the same. If you are getting zeros above RT 9 then fish below RT 9. You can't really see the fish there soooo it's going to be harder, I guess.
The EB - Go fish!! As mentioned above you have to check the levels of neighboring rivers for the next few weeks. It really begins to hop by mid May!!
The guy in the photo - that's Charlie from Evening Sun Fly Shop on the Millers!! Spend your money there!!!!!!! You'll get a great deal and will be shopping local!
