Updates and My Mistake About The Y-Pool
Last week I said that everything was fine with the Swift because I had heard, from vary reliable sources, that the upper CR had been stocked TWICE. Since I wrote that I have not met anyone who has caught or seen any trout above RT. 9. There is no excuse for this condition. Maybe the DCR has other plans for the area like making it a strolling park or encouraging groups like the 15 or so UMASS types who were actually trying to wade (as in SWIM) in the river Saturday. I don't care what anyone says - this river belongs to fly fishers first!!
The PIPE has fish and it also has a huge population of the rudest bait slingers that you can imagine. They will attempt to crowd you out. The solution is to make this catch and release year round. I was talking to a DWF fellow last week who said the same thing.
Bows, browns and suckers will be what you will be fishing over from the gauge downstream.
The EB is RIGHT NOW and the Millers is almost there. Below 300 cfs in the Bears Den is great, 590 cfs in Erving is almost there. The browns go in May 8 in the CR sections of the Millers.
I don't know if you've noticed but we are in a dry spell. Most measured river flows in MA. are actually below normal for this time of year and it will not be the first time that we had a snowy winter followed by a bone dry spring and summer. We could use some rain.
