Swift River reports

Michael Hagan (ljgurke) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: 7/9/10 - stocked in FFO section on 7/9. Very hot and sunny, spotted hundreds of fish in the cool, crystal clear water. Threw everything including the kitchen sink at them. Saw old timer get a few on a #14 black ant. Tried the ant with no luck. Finally put on a #22 red midge larvae trailing a czech nymph and picked up an 8" wild brookie and 3 rainbows including a fat 15", and lost several more in short order. (07/16/10)

Swift River descriptions

Andy Idema (aidema) wrote - The Swift River flows from the Quabbin Reservoir. From there downstream to Route 9 the Swift is an great catch and release tailwater fishery that is restricted to fly fishing only. Steady cold water from the Quabbin allow this river to be an excellent year round trout fishery. It is stocked with rainbow, brown, and brook trout. Fly anglers can catch landlocked salmon too.

Try away from the crowds - downstream in the Bondsville stretch. Great holding water with lots of trout, don't see the pressure that they get at (1/19/13)
