    Fishing Report: Adirondack Fishing, Northern NY

    27" of snow blanketed the river banks of the Northern Adirondacks last weekend, but that didn't keep papa bear away from the stream.

    One member of our fishing party landed a 25" wild brown on a nymph, but that was his only catch of the day. I realized when I got to camp that I left my memory card at home (doh!) but one guy took plenty of pictures and he's going to get some over to me shortly -- I'll post some pix here asap.

    But I did have my video camera with me and today I uploaded some footage I shot May 2 over the weekend of two trout I caught. I first landed an 18" brown, and then later on a HUGE 21" hog. Not bad for catching fish after a big snowfall, right?!

    Check it out here... im trying to embed it so I hope this works... if not click the link:

    I guess CMM has a point (fly fishing site blah blah blah), however, you can learn a lot from a spin fisherman who catches bigger fish than you do.

    The 25" brown was taken on a nymph fly fishing, just as I stated in the post...gentlemen. given the chance to take a few casts, yes Papa Bear will usually spin fish.

    and all I'm trying to do is post a video or pictures and providing conditions updates, how is that off limits? everyone else on this forum does the same exact thing, and I think its pretty useful.

    27" is a healthy snowfall, It must have melted pretty quick, I don't see any snow in your pics.

    Hell no and it aint over now.......

    the temps got back up into the 50s and 60s, but the runoff made the rivers swell and wading was extremely hard. it should be in the 70s tomorrow so yeah -- that snow came and went and the only flies that seemed to not be bothered were the black flies, which are already out in the Northern ADKs.

    Late last week, I think Thurs. Here is a shot taken by a friend on a little brook elsewhere... all bundled up fishing that day.

    If anything he's promoting a region, not himself. BTW, it did snow like the banshees up there the weekend (April 24,25) before he took these shots (May 1,2.) If you recall, it was the very same weekend we got all the rain and cold temps down here- well, they got snow in the ADKs.

    Thank you Ryan.

    You know, first and foremost, I'm sick and tired of people thinking that the fishing is overrated in the Adirondacks. Within 60 miles of where I make camp you have some of the best trout fishing water in the east and believe me, most of it goes left un-fished for the majority of the season.

    People are drawn to the big names and historic waters -- the Battenkill and Vermont region, the Delaware region, the no kill section of the WB Ausable, the Saranac, and so forth.... Not to mention some of the other rivers that I've so-called "promoted" on this forum.... the Sacandaga, the Mettawee, Scroon, West Canada, etc. They see alot of fishing traffic but guess what, that's not all there is to Northern New York.

    There is some of the best, most secluded and wild fishing opportunities where you can catch beautiful brown, rainbow, and brook trout all day and never see another soul, never hear another car, train, airplane, WHATEVER -- and it's all in the Adirondacks.

    It's time for people to wake back up to the fact that the Adirondacks STILL hold the best wild trout fishing opportunities anywhere in New York, probably the North East, possibly the east.

    When you take into consideration what it's worth to you... getting back to the nature aspects, the fishing, the hunting, the privacy and seclusion of wilderness - your damn right I'm loyal to the region and think there's plenty to be said for it.

    And that's that.

    Re: Fishing Report: Adirondack Fishing, Northern NY

    You are absolutely right, there is more to the ADKs, alot of prime water with big fish that hardly gets fished, and there is a reason for that. I have a good idea of where you caught those fish (been there a few times myself), and first of all its far, a really far drive, literally in the middle of nowhere, for most of us from "down state". Its much easier to drive the 1.5hrs to the big D and enjoy quality fishing. Second, access to that water is pretty difficult. Very few walk-in points, most of the time you have to go in stealth mode.

    All of these are very, very good things actually. Otherwise the fishing would not be as good as it is.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.
