Like The Millers Of Old (And The EB)
The old Millers River has taken a page from the 80's and 90's and republished it into the late Spring of 2015. Everywhere is producing! My friend Bill and I worked the Bridge Street Pool on Memorial Day with Bill fishing the great tail of this pool and I working the riffles at the head. Bill brought up trout to dries and I did the same high sticking above. All told 8 were hooked and 6 were landed.
Off to the Kempfield where we fished a few corners that are seldom touched by anglers and had surface action. Wednesday evening I ran into Don Barnes of Regal (the vise) Engineering and he told me of an epic sulphur hatch on Tuesday evening. We saw some of the end of this hatch and took trout. It's been great on this river BUT fish the evenings for results and a memorable time.
The EB - Boom or Bust it seems to be. You either catch them or you don't. The brookies have provided some seasonal sport but the rainbows and the browns are there to carry us through the Summer. Fishing is harder than in past years but if you get into trout it will be very rewarding.
The Swift - I've heard of the place. Maybe I should fish it(HAHAHA). Actually it's been fun making some longer casts for a change!!
