Meat Season
« on: Oct 12, 2017, 12:01 PM »
After the rain we’ve had I decided I wasn’t feeling good (“arm was in a cast” for a day) and hit the rivers. I threw some nice meaty streamers in the east branch and west branch of the Westfield. The water was still much lower than normal but I got 4 holdovers, three on streamers and one on a small caddis nymph (self tied!!) I had trailing the streamer. The two in the east branch were very healthy and strong fish with the second one being close to 15+ inches.  The west branch fish were nice but on the smaller side.

I've been fishing below hogsback a handful of times now.  The first time I went there I crushed it on dries.  I got about 4 in 40 minutes.  The next few times I went the water was substantially lower and I was only able to land one or two.  The two most recent times I went the water was even lower and I only fished for about 30 minutes and got skunked.  Since I don't know the flows there I opted for the Westfield.  I fished spots on the east branch that I had never fished but knew they'd be holding in that area since its a little bit of a hike in to get there.  The west branch spots are also very remote and the two spots I fished normally hold fish all year (excluding last year).  I'll drop you a message next time I'm headed to the farmy.  It is a pretty short drive from my new place, like 25 minutes tops.

Nice glad you made it over.  If you here the subie rumble coming from a blue saab thats me.  Water was variable because they were pumping for hydro.  Now its been the same for a while.  Down the road in Peoplesforest the dry fishing has been exceptional in the C&R section.

Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in awell preserved body; but rather to skid in side ways totally worn out shouting (holy sh*t)  WHAT A RIDE! FISH ON!.

Unfortunately I don't think they will be able to stock the westfield at the current flows and usually they only stock until around columbus day.  Other rivers like the deerfield have got a good amount of fish though.  I got a couple up there on saturday.
