I was up in that area a few weeks ago. Many willing fish rising on Pushinear and Big Black. Fewer on Deboullie. Hardly any risers on Gardner. Ants would be a hatch I'd be looking for if the weather comes off humid..

Red River Camps are an outstanding outfit. You'll enjoy your stay with them.

was up there years ago and had a good time. I fished with a couple of guys that knew the area pretty well. we stayed at Red River camps as well. We lugged some canoes up with us , but also used some of the canoes that the camps had as well. Some of the smaller ponds provide pretty good action, although on most of them the average size of the fish can be smaller. I had good luck with bigger Adams and Wulff patterns on the surface , also flies with red and white in them as well. If you are patient enough ( or inclined) to nymph fish we had good luck with that as well. It was more fun to fish dry flies in the evening though.

Just back from there. Big Black and Denny were good. Bigger fish in Big Black. Its a hike in but RRC has canoes stashed there. We had winds for 3 of our 4 days so fished sinking tip with Maple Syrups and red muddlers. Evening hatches were very sparse but a few warm days could change that. You will enjoy the place and Jen will steer you right! Stop at Alvin Therault's place on the way up just out of Patten. He will have the latest report as most people coming back south stop and check in with him.
