    Default Fishing Report: Early June, Northern ADKs

    Papa Bear's back from a week long excursion up to the stream-side cabin tucked away in the seclusion of the northern Adirondacks. I have some fly fishing updates and pictures that may concern the forum here.

    The weather and conditions for the first couple days was perfect for dry fly action -- no rain, low water, river temps in the 60's and a heat wave that brought sun and air temps in the 80-90's to northern NY. Several trout were caught and released in the 12-19" range on both nymphs and dry flys. Stonefly imitations such as the 20 incher, Hare and Herl, and Ausable Ugly were effective. Green Drake patterns also enticed mid-day feeding brook trout, and a 19" rainbow threw the hook thrashing around after gulping down the big dry fly.

    The second half of the trip had overcast skies, rainy, windy, and overall tough fishing conditions for the fly fisherman at camp. Heavy rains brought the trout directly into the heaviest pockets and riffles throughout the river and casts had to be absolutely perfect. Several trout were caught and released in the 17-20" range on flys -- all streamers. Heavily weighted marabou muddlers, Rich Garfield's Sirloin, and a few other custom streamers were all effective at the end of the day. Minnow imitations were the way to go --- and the Ol' Master Papa Bear here did hook up on a few 20-22" browns but was unfortunately broken off each time.

    The last day Papa Bear got his revenge by landing the golden beauty posted last -- a 22 and 1/2" wild brown trout.

    Here are some pictures:

    Some days it really did play like the Masters course. That's why I say it's like having access to Augusta National, except you have it all to yourself!!
