Isinglass River - November 16

Reported by my buddy Dick: River fished well today -- got a dozen strikes - landed about half - water was 49.2F - a couple of fish were really active jumped a couple of times each --- only one fish at Falls on soft hackle - and another at first bend pool (Steep Bank Pool) - also on soft hackle - then moved downstream - further than I have been before - fish in every slower run or pool -- everything downstream were on small buggers - yellow and black and all black - down in this area - none hit the soft hackle - or the nymph dropper.
Lost several rigs to submerged logs - water was considerably higher than on 11/04.
On way out found two spin fishermen (guys about 30 years old) fishing worms at Falls - showed them the rules book - they reluctantly left.
No other fly fishermen -- had the place to myself from 11 am to 3 PM - one guy - with wife and two kids - was carrying a fly rod - but no waders or vest or fly box - they were hiking and exploring. Lots of people with large dogs ...........

  1. Signage at Parking Lot is rain Damaged and almost illegible - with regard to rivers regs of - "catch and release - artificials only - must be barbless -- a sign like those at Lamprey would be good at Falls area -- (but may well get torn down and drowned.
