Default Ware river MA ?

Does anyone have input on this river ? Do you think there are any hold overs ?
I drove by it on my way back from the Swift today , thinking of giving it a shot.

Thanks

Are you talking about the main branch in Barre? Between Barre Plains and Ware, the river is heavily stocked (in the spring) according to what I have been able to find. However, the stockings are usually completed by May and the "hold over" rate is rather poor due to high summer temps. You would be better off exploring the upper branches around Hubbardston or Rutland. Although these areas are subjected to high temps and poor holdover counts as well, the pocket water and reduced pressure may help.

Just a thought.

Take care,
Dan

I have never fished any part of it. I know about the same but was hopeful there might be a chance. I live pretty close by so as soon as the water drops from all the rain I am going to throw a sink line and a weighted bugger. The Swift was packed last Sat. and it is over an hr. drive.
Deerfield and the Millers are going to be home base this year.
Thinking of a 1 man pontoon for the Deerfield .............not so sure about that idea ?

I fished the Ware today in the Hubbardston and Barre/Princeton area. If there is a fish in there I didn't find or see one. There was a pretty good hatch on too and not a single rise anywhere. Anyone find otherwise ?

One of the power bait guys I talked with managed 2 over the week in the plains area.

I'm headed out in that direction this weekend... not sure how hopeful I am. Will likely hit the Deerfield instead of the Ware though.

I fished the Green in the beginning of the week and came up zip. Went to the DF but didn't wet a line. Water was high but fishable at the picnic area and below the gap.

Good Luck

We ended up trying parts of the Westfield as well as the Deerfield. Fast and high. We saw a riser in a calmer part of the Westfield but I'm not convinced it was a trout. Saw what appeared to be a battered and confused stockie flopping in the shallows of the Deerfield.

That's it though. Not really fishable yet but it was a great scouting mission. Found a bunch of little streams I'd like to try once it gets a bit warmer and the water a bit slower/lower.
