East Branch Madness

The fish are hitting everywhere but especially the East Branch of the Westfield River.  Rain has really brought the water level up but that hasn’t stopped the fish from hitting streamers and royal wullfs.  Mayflies are out and the blue winged olives are starting… its more than go time. I’ve been busy in the studio working and busy guiding so a day off was necessary. I headed out early and landed rainbow after rainbow. More rain rolled in and both the fish and myself could’ve cared less.

Spring is one of the best times to see this river for the first time. Bald eagles, great blue herons, salamanders, bears, moose, deer its all down in the gorge. So much to experience. Oh and did I mention fiddle heads… Last fish of the day was an 18 inch brown trout caught in one of my secret spots.
