Default Adirondack Trip Report

Friends of Adirondack Retreats made a few stops on their way to the secret stream this past weekend. 3 trout stops in all - with plentiful browns, rainbows, and brookies all being caught across the Adirondack park. Water temps above 60 degrees, rain in the evenings, and overcast to partly sunny weather made the fishing conditions absolutely perfect for fly fishing. Dry, wet, nymphs, and streamers were all used to bring well over 50 fish to the net. Many trout ranged from 10-12", many more though were in the 14-16" class, a few were caught in the 17-18" range, several larger trout were broken off, but one wild brown of 21-22" was caught and released after an epic battle at Adirondack Retreats that spanned over 5 minutes and 100 yards of battlefield. Pictures of that beautiful wild brown trout (read hog) will be posted as soon as they are developed.

The majority of fish were taken on a heavily weighted custom woven Yuk Bug nymph, Rich Garfield's Ausable Ugly, Peacock Backed Wooly Buggers, Olive/Pearl flash Caddis emergers, and black stonefly imitations.

Here are some visual highlights of the trip:
