Adirondacks Fishing Report – September 5th, 2014

Cool August weather has kept water temperatures down on the West Branch of the Ausable River and set the stage for some outstanding September fishing. The folks at the Hungry Trout Fly Shop report fishing has been very good on Isonychia patterns and large attractor dry flies. Double nymph rigs using stonefly and pheasant tails patternss or isonychia nymphs has been a hot ticket. Lots of Iso activity all over the river, particularly on overcast days. Decent spinner falls in the evening hours as well.

The region’s numerous ponds have been offering up good action for brookies, while the lakes have been yielding bass and pike.

Lake Champlain bass action continues to be solid, with topwater a great option this time of year. Lakers have also been active down deep.

Rob Hoffman of Pendleton in western New York visited the Adirondacks and caught his biggest northern pike while fishing Fourth Lake. The 44-plus inch fish weighed in at over 23 pounds.
