The Contented Angler
"Where fly fishing is still an
honorable pastime
The Ausable River
The West Branch of the Ausable River is considered by many to be
the premier trout stream in the east, and the river certainly lived up
to this claim as we spent some time camping in the Adirondacks. We
staked out our piece of wilderness at North Pole campground and
found it to be very pristine and relaxing. This is one of those places
that you should experience in a tent, where after sitting around a
hypnotic fire you can fall asleep on the Adirondack earth and be
awakened by the birds and rising trout. We were able to observe
more rising trout than you could count at our campsite gorging
themselves on March Browns, Tan Caddis, and BWO spinners. Yes,
the angling was unsurpassed, but the things that live in your
memory were even better.
