Savage River reports

Chris Turner (garthox31) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Good evening on the savage. Some sulphurs coming off an hour or so before dark. bad weather rolled in right before dark so we didn't get much action after that (06/19/10)
Chris Turner (garthox31) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Fishing on the savage this morning was pretty good. There we're no major hatches, as the morning went on there we're occasional sulfur, blue wing olive and a few green drakes coming off. I picked up some beautiful browns in the pocket water (07/07/09)
Chris Turner (garthox31) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: I fished the Savage below the dam last week. Fishing was fair all evening, right before dark, An incredable blue wing olive and sulpher hatch filled the air above the water. For about an hour you couldn't cast enough times to keep up with the browns (07/04/09)
Kenny Wampler (WAMP) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Flows are up but the fishing is good. Middle fork is flowing a bit high but ended it up being a great day. Lost track of how many fish were caught but is was a lot. The upper savage above poplar lick is a great area for brookies and a few stock rainbows roam around to take home if you want to. After inspecting the stomach of a rainbow I would advise trying a hellgrammite pattern, the thing was packed full. (04/13/09)
PJ Daley (pdaley) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: fishing is starting to get hot on the warm afternoons (03/16/09)
PJ Daley (pdaley) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: The upper Savage has been fishing well on the sunny days that warm up a bit. Little black stoneflies (#18) and little dark caddis (#18)hatch for an hour or so in the afternoon. The lower river is still running brown due to the dam repair project. The Corp. is going to halt the repair until next fall. Water quality should improve soon. Hopefully they haven't done too much damage to the fish and the stream. We'll see in the upcoming months.
