Fishing Report -  West Branch Ausable River, New York
March

The stream levels are back very high again. It is still very cold but trout can still be
caught. There are still some midge and winter stonefly hatches taking place.

Stream Conditions:






7 Day Weather Forecast:
There is a chance of rain/snow through Saturday,
otherwise clear this coming week. Highs will range from 3
1 to 36 and lows from 9 to
31 degrees.


Recommended Trout Flies:
Midges: Blood (Red), sizes 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Cream, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Light Green, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin, size 6
Black Matuka and Olive Matuka Sculpin, size 4/6
Blue-winged Olives: size 18 and 20, nymph, emergers, duns and spinners
Winter Stoneflies, size 16/18, nymphs and adults
Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
We still think the best strategy is to fish a tandem Midge rig under a small strike indicator with the midge
lava as the bottom fly and the midge pupa as the top fly. Fish the adult midge only when you observe trout
feeding on the surface.
Our Brown Sculpin and White Belly sculpin are great flies for the entire fall and winter seasons.
The Olive Matuka Sculpin and Black Matuka Sculpin are good flies to use at this time.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
