I'll be headed up to the ADKs either late June or early July, primarily to fish the West Branch of the Ausable. I went up and fished it for a week two years ago (Late July, early August), and while I caught some small browns in the main river and brookies in the tribs, and I don't feel like I got all there is to get. I don't want or need specific locations, as I know a couple good spots, but first off, is Late June a good time, and are there some good hatches, techniques that time of year I need to know?

Thanks for any help

If this is too specific of a question to ask, (since it regards a specific river) just tell me and I'll shut up.

I can't help you with the Ausable, since I don't know it, but I don't find the questions at all too specific. For anything that is really sensitive like specific spots that some of us are willing to share with one person, but not the whole world, we often use a PM (Personal Message) which can be sent through the (my home)section of the site. Someone might want to PM you some of the information you ask about.

Here is a link to one of many Adirondack hatch charts I located in about ten seconds by Googling "Adirondack hatch charts".
