Swift River Spincasting (Trout Involved) Details
Name:Swift River Spincasting (Trout Involved)
Created By:rlstates
Details:So I was reading reviews on how "hard" The swift river trout are to catch, So I decided to take a trip down to Hubbardstown which is about 40 minutes from my Abode in Gardner. Like a dummy I parked above Rt. 9 Bridge and made a Bee line for the Famous "Y" Pool, little did I know is was fly only (now I know) so I hiked back down to the car and found Cady lane which is not on any GPS , Walked down by the pump station and had 5 Rainbow trout and 1 Brookie in about 20 Minutes, it was amazing and my first Experience catching trout in Mass! I kept Three, now You have to be careful the seasonal catch and release only (July 1st - December 31st) ends by the Pump station you can fish either side of the river. the other side is the Mass wildlife station where you can park outside the gate and cut thru the property to fish. I made sure i Knew where I could go. this spot Produces some very nice size trout, and Mixed in with the stocked are some native trout with a much deeper Red onto the Jaw. this is my new Favorite Spot and maybe Ill see some of you down there?!

Sounds like a great trip but for reference there are no native rainbow trout in Massachusetts..they are native to the Pacific Coast of North America and Mexico etc.

Dude, you weren't in Hubbardston. At Cady Lane, the West bank of the Swift is in Belchertown, and the East bank is in Ware. Not that it matters at all to the fish. It is a remarkable river, eh?
