"Be patient and calm - for no one can catch fish in anger" - Herbert Hoover
No one was at the Pipe Parking lot at 7am and on one was there when we got back at 2:30. The Y Pool lot seemed strangely un populated early and late in the day. No matter, me and my client were going elsewhere and elsewhere was the Ware River. We did well during that morning trip (Friday) catching and losing some on SH drifts but did better working dries upstream. Bows and Browns were the order. Then we went to Bondsville! (the Lower Swift if you don't know)
I was there on Wednesday during a video shoot and we passed the double digit mark within a half an hour. Brookies, browns and bows all fell to (guess what) an olive and partridge. One thing of notice: almost all of the trout were stuffed to the gills with a size 16 nymph that appeared to be a sulphur or a Pale Evening Dun (also considered a sulphur in some circles). We were ther at mid day. God only knows, or a lucky flyfisher, what ended up hatching during the evening.
Fish below the last dam or go down to the industrial park cul de sac and fish from there. It is TOTALLY different from above RT 9 which may offend folks that like that park-like atmosphere but the water is still COOL and there are trout. It LOOKS like a trout stream and it will be good for you and your soul!
The Millers is doing well. I was there during the past week and I did well. All places mentioned in my Millers Guide are prime right now especially in the early morning and in the evening. Order my Millers Guide so you will know where to go instead of reading self serving reports that will NEVER tell you where they were fishing.
The EB - Well, what can I say! I've done well and so have my reporters.
Happy Memorial Day.
