Early morning on the Ausable River West Branch

Fly Fishing the West Branch of the Ausable River

I spent 3 days fishing the West Branch of the Ausable River this September with my cousin Scott. We stayed at the Hungry Trout Resort in Wilmington in the Adirondacks. Fishing wasn’t easy as we struggled to match the hatch. One nice little brown trout was all I got. The leaves were starting to colour up and the views while wading up and down the river made up for the lack of fishing action. I fished the same area the last week of April this year. Matt, one of the guides recommended early June as the best time to be on the river. I’ll have to book for next year at that time.
