As of August 12th, The “Ausable’s” are flowing at approx. 400+cfs. After some much needed rain, the rivers are looking good right now with water temps 60-65deg. Fish evenings and early mornings. BWO’s, Iso’s, and Terrestrials are go-to “hatches”
Mountain streams for Brook Trout are also in good shape. Basic Streamers and Wet Flies will draw out these native fish.
Try Adams and BWO Parachutes (14-16), Elk Hair Caddis (16-18), Hoppers and Beetles (10-12) and as always, Black BH Wooly Buggers (8-10) and Muddler Minnows (10-12). Also, don’t be afraid to get some large streamers (Circus Peanuts, WMD’s, Articulated Leeches Size 2-6) moving through feeding lanes…you might be pleasantly surprised.
Warm water fishing continues to be productive. Red and Chartreuse Poppers for Bass in evening (2-6) and Large Streamers to Pike/Muskie (Clouser Style Minnows 2/0-4)
FREE Fly Casting Lessons for all abilities on Wednesday Nights in July and August…7-8 PM at The Keene Valley Lodge in beautiful downtown Keene Valley.
CLINICS WILL BE CANCELLED FOR RAIN OR STORMS…FYI!
