High Peaks Fly Fishing Conditions Report 8/12

 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)

 Products of the week are the Galvan Torque Reel and Patagonia Stealth Atom Sling, check ‘em out!

 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.
