THIS WEEK`S DIABLE RIVER FISH INDEX:
" Your best source for what might happen and not what you missed ..."
Week of June 25 (DRFI 3.0):
HAbsent any significant rains this coming week Diable River levels will drop rapidly from their current moderatly high levels and allow for progressively better definition of river structures and greater access to wadeable waters. The cool waters are keeping trout active and we can expect a return to greater hatch activity.
Week of June 11 (DRFI 4.0):
River conditions continue to take shape and improve for some early season action. Flows have dropped significantly over the past weeks and are now in the 20s m3/sec on the Diable. This is offering more wadeable waters and river structures are becoming more defined. Water clarity is excellent and temperatures remain ideal for keeping trout active. A variety of hatches are occuring including caddis and stonefly which is provide many angling options and tactics. The spoiler that keeps us guessing this week are the spot of rains in the forecast for the later part of the week and into the coming weekend. If amounts are moderate to high we could see a bump in water levels and more turbidity which will put a damper on things. Cool water temperatures will help keep trout stillwaters a great option this coming week. We are having some great outings on Lac Tremblant which we expect to continue this week. Happy angling.
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.
