    The dirt road will bring you up to the road the hatchery is on. There is a small lot on the left right before it turns in to the dirt road, where the turnaround for that street is.

    Good to know there's more holes to dish other than the y pool and bubbler

    Beautiful piece of property. There's a nice deep pool in front of the house. Last time I took the canoe out there was quite a few trout there.

    Ken at Millers River FFF says "Hot Spots" are working. Google his site and you can find a recipe.

    Was on the Swift just south of Rt 9 this afternoon. Things were slow, but there are plenty of fish around. Then it started to rain, and the 'bows really started feeding on something, both underwater and rising. I spotted a couple (literally, two) small cream-colored mayflies go off, so I suspect the 'bows were intercepting nymphs on their way to the surface. *shrug* I'm not a particularly good streamside entomologist, and my cream-colored mayfly dries and emergers didn't elicit much interest.

    In any case, I did manage to bring a few fish to the surface on a foam beetle and a chubby chernobyl of all things. Two broke me off as I was using 7x and there were some big fish running through this pool, and my knot failed on the third. Bad luck, landing-wise, but I always feel blessed when I can provoke a strike with a dry fly on the Swift.

    Planning on going back tomorrow.
    Cheers,

    Try the San Juan worm I've never not caught fish there with it if that makes any sense
