THIS WEEK`S DIABLE RIVER FISH INDEX:
" Your best source for what might happen and not what you missed ..."
PROJECTED CONDITIONS 2019:
Week of 17 June, 2019 (DRFI 1.0):
Heavy precipitations over the past weekend doubled the water flows in the Diable River and streams which has set back fishing conditions for the coming week. Forecasted dryer and hotter weather will gradually improve wading conditions ahead of the National Holiday long weekend. Watch for road closures on the 22-23 June weekend related to the Ironman Tremblant events. Lake action for bass and musky is off to a good season opening week.
Week of 10 June, 2019 (DRFI 1.5):
The persistence of rain will keep the flows of the Diable River oscilating at around 30 m3/sec this week which opens up more wadeable access. However the wet weather will cloud up water quality which will impact fishing conditions. Area lakes are turning over towards their summer status which will slow trout action this week and move fish into deeper waters. We are looking forward to bass season opening this weekend in our fishing zones.
Week of 3 June, 2019 (DRFI 1.0):
The persistence of rain is keeping the flows of the Diable River and tributaries oscilating at around 50 m3/sec. With dryer and warmer weather on the horizon this coming week we could see improved wade fishing conditions in time for this coming weekend`s Fishing Festival. Area lakes continue to offer good surface action for trout and landlocks on light tackle and flies.
Week of 27 May, 2019 (DRFI 1.0):
The persistence of rain has kept the flows of the Diable River and tributaries oscilating at high levels with no sign of dropping. With dryer and warmer weather on the horizon this coming week we could see improved wade fishing conditions. We shall hope and see!!.. Area lakes continue to offer good surface action for trout and landlocks on light tackle and flies.
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.
