Fishing Report for May 31, 2011:

Hey there everyone — just got a report back from Papa Bear at the cabin and he says the water level has dropped into perfect levels for trout fishing, and the upcoming forecasts in the ADK region to maintain excellent fishing conditions in the area.  The river is extremely wadeable even for the tentative, trout are fully active with several fish being caught this past Memorial Day Weekend in the 15 – 20+” range.  Pictures will be up as soon as the Bear returns from the command center and gets some wifi access.

The forecast for Northern NY for early June is as follows:

Late May Conditions Report: Secret Stream = Fabulous Hight

Papa Bear is at the cabin for the foreseeable future — he’s got some last minute organization and firewood recon to do before the busy season begins.  Adirondack Retreats is booked solid for the next few weeks, and according to the Ol Master the river is at a pristine level right now. 80 degrees, a bit of humidity, lots of bug activity, and perfect flows right now at the property.  There are going to be some storms heading into the area for the next few days, but the water level will drop back down immediately within a day or two keeping the flows at the perfect level for early to mid June.

If you’re interested in booking a trip, give Wayne a call at 607-785-8215.  There is still some availabilty but act fast before all openings are filled.

Happy Memorial Day and as always – Tight lines!

Heading into the mountains

Papa Bear will be disappearing into the Adirondacks for a few weeks and with no electric or computers at my remote outpost you will have to contact me on my cell phone. Pictured is the reason I am going there. I would love to put you in this picture so feel free to call me at 607-785-8215. With waters finally receding to levels where you don’t need a #2 split shot just to get the bait down, I predict some amazing fishing in the next few weeks. I just posted some new videos on you-tube, search adirondackwayne, and one features some of the incredible insects found here. The dog has been watching me closely as I am packing and her tail is wagging like the propeller on a plane. I will be feeding updates to my web master and he will post critical updates and I will communicate once I return.
