AuSable Trip Report June 2015

A few weeks back, I went up for a weekend of fishing with friends and had a fun time.

I stayed in what is my favorite spot along one of the AuSable branches, and targeted brookies mostly.

The first day was a float down the north branch, and I got into a few brookies.

And during that one evening, I got into a really nice brookie.

The bugs were REALLY thick that evening. Even my iphone was able to pick up the bugs in the picture. You can even see some bugs mating in this one.

We did a pretty fruitless wade down the main branch, but at least the weather was agreeable.


Before we headed back home, we hit the river one last time. It was raining pretty bad, and I started tossing big streamers, but had no luck. Eventually switching to a nymph seemed to do the trick.
