Re: Three-day Fall Trip: Where do you go in the Northeast?
You have to be able to find some fishing close to home. I'm thinking stay in Lake Placid and fish the Ausable for brown trout. Streamers except for the mid day caddis and work the pockets and tail outs really well with the streamers. Whitlock Sculpins Dk. brown would be a good choice for the big wets.
By staying in L. Placid you and your son will have lots of cool shops to visit and there are more than a few fly shops in the area.
