Fishing Report - West Branch Ausable River, New York
September 17, 2017
The stream levels are back to normal and the river in good shape in all sections. We
received one good report from a customer fishing yesterday. There are a few
hatches taking place but rather weak. That doesn't mean they should be ignored.
You can still catch trout from them. Terrestrials should be working as well.
7 Day Weather Forecast: The rain ends today and then it is clear for the coming
week. Highs will range from 72 to 82 and lows from 50 to 60 degrees.
