THIS WEEK`S DIABLE RIVER FISH INDEX:
" Your best source for what might happen and not what you missed ..."
Week of July 15 (DRFI 3.0)
Expecting more of the same this coming week. Occasional periodic rain events are helping to keep things on the fresh side and water levels ideal. We are deep into the summer stretch.
Week of July 8 (DRFI 3.0)
We made it through last week`s heat wave reasonably well with some timely rains keeping things on the fresh side. We are now heading into a warm and dry spell which will drop water levels which should make for some nice dry fly action. Look for some variable angling conditions across the Diable fishing sector over the coming week depending on timing and fishing sections. We expect a continuation of the good fishing action on bass and musky on our stillwater adventures.
Week of July 1 (DRFI 3.0)
We are heading for a stretch of very hot weather this week which will keep things rather slow on the rivers and lakes. We could also use another bout of precipitation to keep water temperatures on the cool side. Choose the mornings during the coming days. Happy Canada and Independence Days.
Week of June 24 (DRFI 4.0)
Another great week of fishing in the forecast. We anticipate a repeat of last week's river fishing conditions minus the bump in water levels. A bit of rain mid week will just keep things nice and fresh and set the stage for more great fishing on dropping water levels throughout the week.
Week of June 17 (DRFI 4.0)
We anticipate a repeat of last week's river fishing conditions. A bout of rain to start off the week will freshen things up nicely and set the stage for more great fishing on dropping water levels throughout the week. We will also be turning our attention to our bass and musky waters now that the season is underway.
The DIABLE RIVER is a fairly wide mountain-fed freestone river with a expansive watershed which makes it very responsive to precipitations. During early spring in April and May, water levels can be at flood levels or very high depending on ice and snow melt as well as springtime precipitations. Water temperatures can also be less than optimal for trout this time of year and afternoons on sunny days present the best fishing opportunities. The months June and July offer some of the best water conditions with optimal temperatures and levels throughout the day. Prolonged precipitations do however affect conditions during this period. As water levels drop to their lowest levels in August and September, the features of the Diable river become much better defined and the slower pace of the currents offer the best dry fly opportunities of the year. Early mornings and evenings are the best fishing times but some good surprises are always in store outside these periods. The fishing season on the Diable extends to the end of November for bass and pike with trout on a catch and release only basis from mid-September.
The DIABLE RIVER FLY FISHING ONLY SECTOR consists mainly of long stretches of pocket water, at times deep, with scattered but poorly defined pools. Streamers and nymphs are recommended for the most part with good dry fly opportunities after July. Caddis flies are abundant throughout the season with the most prolific hatches occurring in early June. There is also a good population of stoneflies with the best hatches occurring at the end of June. Mayflies are not in large abundance on the Diable, in terms of numbers and variety. Hatches are limited in size and duration with imitation or attractor patterns being the most consistent performers.
STREAMS AND TRIBUTARIES of the Diable watershed offer good spring-time fishing opportunities for brook trout and also for brown trout. Depending on the amount of precipitation during the season, these can offer good fishing throughout the season.
STILLWATER lakes provide good early season fishing opportunities for surface action on brook and rainbow trout, lake trout and also landlocked salmon on selected lakes. Several area lakes contain good populations of bass, pike, muskie and other sportfish which offers good fishing opportunities during the entire summer months with rising
temperatures. Most can be taken on a fly. Personal boat access on area lakes is restricted and fishing them may require access fees, the services of a professional guide or use of on-site rentals.
