Boquet River
 
I'm considering giving the Boquet River a try, and I haven't been able to find a great deal of information about it. Does anyone know what types of trout are in the river? Also, can anyone recommend some good spots to fish from shore? Any additional information would be appreciated as well. Feel free to PM me if you don't want to post the info on the board. Thanks.

What part of the river are you interested in?

fall run of salmon near the mouth is suppose to be decent.
i tried the spring run couple years ago but got skunked.
it was one of those "should've been here last weekend" times

Around Elizabethtown/Willsboro area, but I'm willing to give any part a try.

Actually, I just read an article on that subject. Maybe this has something to do with it.

Here's the article link.

Gnat, are you planning on taking on the challenge of fly fishing, or do you intend to go with the old standby?

I like to fish the upper parts of the river. You never catch anything big, but it's fun to have to rock hop up and over boulders while you fish.

Species
 
Most of the trout I have caught out of the river have been browns and rainbows, but I would assume all three species are present, as are salmon. When fishing with worms, chubs usually try to feast on your bait as well. I know a couple of good spots, gnat, but I can't post them on here!

I may be willing to give fly fishing a try, especially if there are a lot of creek chubs.

creek chubs---> :evil:

Chubs
 
Come on, there's nothing like a big fat creek chub. Actually, the trout hit for us just as well.
