Trout snout fever. Fly fishing the North Branch Potomac and Savage River in western Maryland is stellar!

It’s been all dry fly action with Savage River Angler, LLC this summer. The North Branch delivered the goods again last night. Joe and I floated last night and blew it up again. I can’t think of a better season of consistent dry fly action. The slate drake hatch was light last night, but was…

 

Oh man. You missed it again. Yet another fully epic adventure floating the North Branch Potomac!

Yesterday proved to be another unbelievable day of floating. Joe and I set out late in the afternoon for a quick half day float. The fish were coming up from way down deep in some of the deepest pools for a parachute adams. No need to nymph at all what so ever. Joe stuck somewhere…

 

Smokin’ hot action again on the North Branch Potomac. Rod Yassin the trout assasin strikes on his first ever float with Savage River Angler!

Well, I keep waiting for it to slow down, but it just keeps staying good to excellent. The North Branch has been absolutely smoking hot this season. Aside from a few tough days, it’s been absolutely fantastic. The Savage has been very good, but with all the young of the year in it, the bigger…

 

The North Branch and Savage Rivers are still smoking with great dry fly action. Garrett county is getting lots of rain, and the fly fishing is great!

I had a chance to slip out a few night ago and hit Spot X on the North Branch of the Potomac after a wade trip yielded all small fish on the lower Savage. There was an ok slate drake hatch that got all the fish looking up and I took full advantage with my…

 

Great dry fly action on the lower Savage last night.

So, I had a full day wade on the lower Savage yesterday. We got in the water a little before 2 pm after waiting out a few storms. There wasn’t much bug activity, so we started “searching” with a caddis and parachute adams double dry rig. The trout were very quick to let us know…

 

North Branch Potomac is excellent again. Wild rainbow snouts everywhere last night.

Last night was another wonderful evening. We took a half day float from Barnum – Bloomington and TORE THEM UP! Dennis managed to put his flies in the right places all the way down the river last night and was rewarded the whole way. The action picked up in earnest around 5:30 and peaked around…

 

Savage River is fishing well

We’ve been reporting mainly on the North Branch of the Potomac recently, but yesterday the lower Savage fished pretty well despite the heat and abundant sunshine. What a great place to escape the summer weather that has finally found it’s way to us. Good midge fishing was had in the pocket water yesterday, and a…

 

Deep Creek fly fishing sizzles in the summer heat

The fishing has remained very good on the North Branch of the Potomac and Savage Rivers. Even though it’s mid summer, the cloudy conditions and plentiful rain have kept the fishing much better than average. Recent wades on the Savage, although a touch on the full side, have been giving up some great dry fly…

 

Another exceptional evening float

Well the slate drake hatch came through again last night. I’ve been steering most of my floats towards the evening hours, which is paying off big time. The slate drake hatch was a little lighter last night, but was still mixed with a few march browns, stones, and midges. A few caddis and an unidentified…

 

Lower savage still fishing well

We had a lot of little fish that ate flies on the lower Savage yesterday. Could make contact with any larger fish fishing typical dry fly patterns, but the fingerlings were eating everything that went over them. The bigger fish seam to be sitting back and waiting for better hatches before they decide to eat…
