The Long Weekend, November Fishing and Chronicle Magazine
Ok, no excuses!! This is the weekend that many have been waiting for. The heat of Labor Day is long gone. Temperatures in the 60's will rule the day. Water Temperatures will be in the 50's at least that's where they were on the EB late Wednesday afternoon. Our select freestones have been stocked by now. Time to fish.
The Millers is reporting good catches on the lower CR and the water levels are fine. If the levels can stay below 400 cfs we will have a great Autumn on this river. The EB will get a bump in flow due to rain today but that shouldn't harm things at all. The fish are there. The Swift is the same old Swift - reliable but crowded. Remember, you can get away from the crowds on this river. That decision is yours. I have a suggestion for the Swift addicts - Fish the Millers or the EB or go to the Ma. DFW home page and go to trout stocking. Look for the UNDERLINED rivers and streams. They get stocked in the Fall and are stocked by now. Find one and fly fish it!!
November was a great month to fly fish last year. The cold/snow of last Winter didn't hit until January and we had many days in the 50's which seemed like early May. I have plenty of November openings BUT the will book quickly. October is full!
The Chronicle Magazine show of two years ago that had me on the EB will be re-aired this Monday. It's called the "Hidden Hills" and it gives you an idea about where I live. It's a beautiful place! Can't see the show? Check the link on this website.
