Deerfield River reports

Walt Geryk (NeffGuide) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Lower sections are at normal flows with good fishing. Upper sections are back to near normal releases and the fishing is also good again. Good fishing is happening now that the flows are stabilizing, especially around the normal fish drop off points of access. Best bets are morning and later day as mid day is hit or miss. Deep water buggering and nymphing remains good for this time of season and the wet fly season is heating up. Fish are spreading out nicely and the forecast for continued good fishing is in the works. Be sure to watch for scheduled fly and spey classes and schools in the area, or call and set up a personalized day of instruction and a wade or float fly fishing trip. (05/31/11)
Walt Geryk (NeffGuide) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Good fly and spey fishing is happening especially around the normal fish drop off points of access. Deep water buggering and nymphing is the best techniques for this time of season. Rainbows averaging 10-14 inches seem to be the norm for now. The releases of 825cfs makes high water wading and fishing in some areas a little better, but caution must be used. These will spread out and the conditions continue to change. All sections are producing healthy Massachusetts reared trout. time to get out and about as the fishing continues to get better. Be sure to watch for scheduled fly and spey classes and schools in the area, or call and set up a personalized day of instruction and a wade or float fly fishing trip. (05/18/11)
Walt Geryk (NeffGuide) reported - 4 - Poor fly fishing: A warm up, but this is adding 32 degree runoff to the river which makes it even slower.Think Spring. Pick a nice warm day and fish the deeper runs and pools in the slower water edges and seams, be patient while nymphing small copper johns as the rainbows will just stop the fly softly. The browns are still feeding on larger patterns with a little color, these stops are a more pronounced tug. Success is experience related with lots of luck too. It's nice to be out, but better fly fishing is not far away! (02/20/11)
