Default Swift River Massachusetts

Anyone ever fish the swift river in Belchertown or Ware Mass. Probably the only place I know of in Mass to consistently catch trophy rainbows and landlocked salmon. I Talking to the locals they informed me that the salmon got washed over the dam in high water and take refuge in the river. The river is cold clear shallow river that is basically sight fishing the wholke way down. If you can figure out what they are feeding on usually the smallest dries you can have a ball. I would try to stay away from weekend because it is pretty heavily fished but if you can get there early on a weekday you can have a ball all day long. Ive always fished early spring but will be making a summer trip soon I know the fish will be there. If you want to see some live action of the swift you can see my videos on youtube my id is bowsie15!!!!
