I went out fishing on the West Branch of the Ausable early this morning with Tom, the owner of the Ausable River Two Fly Shop (a new shop in Wilmington). We fished from about 5am until almost 11am. It rained lightly for most of the time we were on the river. There were a lot of tan caddis, some yellow sallies, and a few green drakes on the river. All the trout I caught were on a size 10 stimulator, except for one brown on a size 16 olive bead head caddis; I had it tied on as a dropper. The river was low and we could really use the rain. The water temp is in the mid 60's. If you are going to be in the Adirondacks, you should really check out the new fly shop in Wilmington and buy some local patterns, some of which are tied by yours truly.
