Millers River Report

Out before dawn and home by 11 am.

I dashed off to the Millers for a quick outing, wanting to see how the river was. Last spring, the water was high and then got warm before I could spend much time there.

So, I wanted to visit it one last time before winter sets in.

I hit two spots that usually produce. Only three takes. Maybe it was due to the cold snap, but, I didn’t experience much action. I’m ok with it. I’ve had many high-volume days, and I think fly fishing is about more than catching.

Hopefully, you’ll have better luck! Enjoy the weekend, and the beauty of autumn….

  1. The Swift has been slow for me lately, though I did catch a very pretty brown last night on a bead-head prince nymph. Many leaves and pine needles on the water make it a little challenging lately.

  2. Nice! I fished the bridge street area about a month ago and the takes were sparse. I hear things have gotten better since then. On Saturday, I hit the swift and there is a monster brown cruising popular stretches of the river. I hooked it and fought it for a several minutes before it snapped my line. It’s 24-30″, huge girth, and I’d guess it weighs 7 pounds. I had it three feet from me when it jumped and snapped my line, so I got a good look. Hopefully someone will land it and post a photo. I’d love to see it.

    I also lost a rubber net with a curved wooden handle and blue clip. Posting here to see if anyone stumbles upon it.

    1. Holy cow, Troutandfly, what a brown! Your heart must have been beating like a rabbit’s with that monster on! And to be so close to netting it too. What fly were you using, if I may ask? I hope your net turns up.
