Week of September 5 - (DRFI 3.0): The final week of trout season ending September 12 will see variable weather patterns that will keep us guessing. Seasonal temperatures forecasted for the coming week will keep trout active but the various rain events will bring some variability in conditions. Conditions will be largely dependant on the amount of rains we get as this will determine what happens to the Diable River and tributary water quality and the water flows levels. However, as the Diable is flowing below the 5m3/s mark it can handle quite a lot of rain. This level offers great full-river fishing opportunities and clear structure definition. With the cool water temperatures, trout will remain active feeding on stoneflies as well as some caddis and mayfly hatches that could offer some good dry fly action. Stillwater lake levels have also dropped to low levels and the cooler temperatures this week. Early morning will offer the best opportunity for rising trout action this week. Bass and musky angling will continue to offer some good stillwater action this week but considering the changing cooler temperatures in the forecast we expect seeing more active Fall-time feeding behavior. ___________________________
Week of August 29 - (DRFI 3.0): Cooler temperatures forecasted for the coming week are a welcome change from last week's heat wave. It wont be enough to relocate fish from the new locations but should help make them more willing to take a fly. The Diable River and tributary water quality remains very good and we expect water flows to remain low for the coming week as we are not expecting any significant rain events. The Diable will flow well below the 10m3/s mark. This will offer great full-river fishing opportunities and clear structure definition. With cooler water temperatures, trout will be more active then we saw in the past week as they resume more active feeding on stoneflies as well as some caddis and mayfly hatches that could offer some good dry fly action. Stillwater lake levels have also dropped to low levels and the cooler temperatures this week will help reverse the warming trend. Early morning will offer the best opportunity for rising trout action this week. Bass and musky angling will continue to offer some good stillwater action this week but considering the changing cooler temperatures in the forecast we will need to work on figuring out their daily feeding behavior. ___________________________
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.
