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.

The EB - Remember??? Open Guiding Dates And Lost Wading Boots



I needed to back away from the Swift for a while. Lots of fish but lots of fishermen. Sure, I have done well in the less fished sections. Friday morning was like that but then I got down to the PIPE just as the PELLET HATCH was winding down. Long time readers know what I think of this. Just backcast to my 11/9/08 post on the matter. Did I fish a pellet? No. They were back in the vehicle where they've been all season. I did a few casts with a SH and then began thinking of the EB. A big bow took me out of my daydreaming and broke me off. Time to go visit the EB.


Saturday morning was a scheduled "off" day from guiding for me and when I hit the EB at 9am I WAS ALONE. In fact, I saw no fly fishers there in the 5 1/2 hours that I fished and only one hiker too (I said that would happen after Labor Day!) I fished long stretches of water slowly while taking in this beautiful spot. The flow was perfect and although there were no Swift-like pods of fish I still managed to fool some bows and a nice brown. Comparaduns and a partridge and orange did the trick.


The EB is a great place!! Take a break from the "same old", straighten out some 5x and fish this river.

BTW, I have Sunday 9/20, Friday 10/9 and Saturday 10/10 open for full day trips (or half day trips) first come, first served.

Update - Someone lost a pair of wading boots by the PIPE parking area. The contact info is in the comment page.

CJG, that was probably me. Saw your Honda CRV? early on. Couldn't believe that we had the place to ourselves! Few bows and really nice brown on soft hackles as well!
