Whats next?

With past couple days getting cooler with either showers or drizzle water temps dipping into mid 40's,has not seemed to affect angler enthusiasm.Many of  us just do not know what to do first,fish or hunt.Why not both?

Are work is never done

Last 2 days , evenings not to cool,a little splash of rain last night,mostly cloudy today unlike yesterdays bright day.River temps still mid 50's to low 50's.

Fishing is very good in the West Branch of the Ausable as we speak.Lately in between training retrievers,preparations for the hunting season,and guiding anglers on the rivers,I have been enjoying some of the fall brook trout fishing, as these fish start to wear there fall colors so brightly.

The season of the olive

Rivers are cooling to a mostly constant temp throughout the day,temps around mid to high 50's.Partly sunny, cool breezy today, air temp high 40's to mid 50's, river level up some from yesterdays occasional showers.

Lots of caddis,and blue wing olives,with blue wing olive nymphs being a good option lately.You also will find big stonefly nymphs,isonychia nymphs,and big streamers to be a  good choice.

Rainy days

With bright blue day yesterday, low water again,nice to see some rain and,cloudy skies today.Water temps back into low to mid 60's tomorrow  is supposed to be the same weather,good rains to fish in.

Myself personally love to fish in warm rains like this,most often in these type of conditions,sub surface fishing is fantastic.

Puppy Time

As many of you know I live a  24/7 sporting life,and feel very blessed for this.With fly fishing being 1 of my 2 major components that make this wonderful life up, the other being dog training with a passion for retriever training for hunting,hunt test,and field trials.With winter putting me on xc skis 6 days a week coaching,and mixed martial arts year round,I find it necessary to have dogs in my life to balance things out.

This is why I have a new  female black lab puppy,she just turned eight weeks and is adjusting very well to this 24/7 life.As I always enjoy reading pedigrees,following field retrievers all over the country,I am very confident in my choice, I am excited to have a new student, and she seems to be excited too.

She is showing great qualities already,loves to be with me,loves birds,loves retrieving,and loves everyone.I have gave her the name Mel,she should be a great companion,hunting dog,hunt test dog,and field trial dog.I will keep you posted on her progress.

For those of you looking for a purebred sporting breed, for a companion,hunting,hunt test,or field trials,I would be glad to help you in selecting the rite breeders for you.I am very well connected with  many breeders,trainers,and have a good handle on what many are breeding.Feel free to call or email with any questions.

Many fish stories

Past two days much cooler air, water temps dipping into  mid 50's again.

As I continue to enjoy wonderful fall fishing,I have been fortunate to take some large colorful fish,the past week.Talking to many other local anglers I am repeatedly hearing the same,this is fall when big browns are ready to fight.

Get out and enjoy some of these final months of fishing on Adirondack waters.

Good soaker last night

Finally some good heavy rains last night,bringing some cooler air temps with it, water temps in the low to mid 60's.River levels are rising and off color as we speak,and should drop considerably by tomorrow.

Great day for stonefly nymphs, and streamers with today's conditions.Tricos are starting to taper off now, with the past week showing much  more Isonychia activity,this rain  should really help these bugs to be plentiful in weeks to come.
