THIS WEEK`S DIABLE RIVER FISH INDEX:
" Your best source for what might happen and not what you missed ..."
PROJECTED CONDITIONS 2019:
Week of 20 May, 2019 (DRFI 0.5):
More of the same for the coming week. The variable and unpredictable weather is keeping us guessing. Be prepared to adapt rapidly to changing conditions. Lakes are offering good surface action for trout and landlocks on light tackle and flies. Water flows on area streams and rivers are dropping fast and for the first time since mid-April it will hit below 100 m3/sec on the Diable by the end of this week. Cool temperatures and intermittent rain events are slowing progress of fishing conditions. This week we will be contented with targeting near-bank wadeable zones offering sun exposed with slower currents.
Week of 13 May, 2019 (DRFI 0.5):
Lakes are offering good surface action for trout and landlocks on light tackle and flies. Water flows on area streams and rivers are dropping fast and for the first time since mid-April it will hit below 100 m3/sec on the Diable by the end of this week. Cool temperatures and intermittent rain events are slowing progress of fishing conditions. This week we will be contented with targeting near-bank wadeable zones offering sun exposed with slower currents.
Week of 6 May, 2019 (DRFI 0.0):
Lakes are now open and ice free which will offer surface action fishing opportunities over the coming weeks depending on weather conditions and temperatures. Snow melt events continue which is contributing to keeping area streams and rivers at very high flow levels making them unsafe for wading.
Week of 28 April, 2019 (DRFI 0.0):
On this first week of trout season opening, our rivers and streams are at flood levels and our lakes remain ice and snow covered. Diable River flows peaked at 240 m3/sec. twice over four days. Consult this page for updated conditions that can change rapidly over the coming weeks.
Week of 22 April, 2019 (DRFI 0.0):
This week ahead of trout season opening on April 26, our rivers and streams are at near flood levels and our lakes remain ice and snow covered. Consult this page for updated conditions that can change rapidly this time of year.
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.
