Re: Swift River Massachusetts
I made it to the river for the first time this year on Wednesday. The weather was nice and there was only a couple other people there. I was a little nervous about getting skunked since I haven't fished in a few months. After getting hung up in a tree and spooking a couple fish I got the hang of it again and landed my first rainbow. I ended up catching about half a dozen rainbows. Most were caught on my pheasant tail beetle pattern and one on my parachute ant/spider pattern. There isn't as many fish as there was last year. The runs between rte 9 and the y pool were pretty empty and there were only a few fish I could see in the bubbler arm. Most of the fish I saw were in the y pool.
