Swift River Fly-Fishing and Surface Striper Action on Watch Hill Reef | S2 E06

Season 18 sponsors

OTW’s Editor Gene Bourque joins contributing writer Paul DiNolo on the Swift River in Western Massachusetts to fly-fish for native brook trout.

Then OTW’s Neal Larsson hops aboard the Anna R to meet up with Capt. Frank Rathburn, who has developed a unique way to fish for stripers. Out on Watch Hill Reef, Capt. Frank uses a lightweight rubber squid that he has rigged with a dual hook. Twitching this lure over the reef results in phenomenal surface strikes from hungry striped bass.
