Flow: 9490 cubic ft/sec main stem

Clarity: brown

Fishing Outlook: The river is absolutely pumping! Just shy of 10000 cfs and the Ausable and surrounding waters are in flood stage at the moment. Always happens once or twice during the spring! Stay tuned and we will fill you in when things recede. In the meantime, go fish a pond or lake etc. There has been an active bite on most flatwater bodies. Call for more details and we can dial you in. This is one reason we always recommend coming up to the ADK with you canoe on your car. If the river conditions are not ideal, the flat water opportunities are abundant.

Upcoming Events: The opening of our partner shop, The Anglers Outpost, is slowly approaching! All the information will be coming out shortly. Very excited to unveil the extension of our business and cater to a wider variety of anglers of all disciplines. Exciting stuff!

We do have openings for guiding for May, so definitely get your day on the books. A few prime dates for private water as well as guides for Salmon and Chateaugay. If you have been fishing up here a while and want to be introduced to some new routines, this is the best way to do it. Call us at 5189462117 and we can fill in the blanks!

Shop is open daily 9-5!
