Should we bring atv's, info on pools,,,,,,,, thanks for any help.
Korlando... I think you meant to say " as Chadman said " and not "as Wannafish said"... no prob for the mix up.. I get called lots of names! lol lolWe were there last yr Sept 9-11 and the fishing was great, but the conditions were perfect and the water had come up after a month of no precip.
ATV a bonus if you want to access the pools below American pool, you need to cross the river and I suspect it may be difficult with the recent raise, but likely doable. Most productive pool is American pool, with the Camp pool and Hook em and Loose-em pool also landing us fish. Wade across the rapid above American Pool and fish it from the opposite side of the river for a different angle. Moose Brook pool should also have fish. Also check out the steep bank pool on the way to American pool, I forget what it is called, and it isnt on the gnb map. As Wannafish said, type in Depot in the upper right Search menu above and you will see a long thread with discussion from last Au/Sept with descriptions of pools, flies, etc. Camp is A1 and easy to get to.
Good luck and report back what happened.
As Chadman said, I posted my results for Depot we were there July 26 -28, I friend of mine was there June 26 -28 If my post doesn't help ya send me a PM I will be more then glad to answer any question you might have that will help ya.Anyone have any info for our group headed to Depot this weekend, hopefully water levels will be down.

This is the correct way to fish the pool. The place to fish from is not where the path or sign is but down river slightly. There is a constriction in the river where it narrows and below this is where the pool is. Start fishing just above the narrow spot and let your wet fly drift into the channel R-L when casting from the left side of the river. I think there was a large rock in the river you could stand behind. If you hook a fish, you need to wade down river to where it widens again because you wont be able to pull the fish through the current to where you are casting from. I landed a 12-15 lb one there last Sept and I replay the event in my head frequently (my first non-grilse)Wade across and fish it from the other side wet - you can fish dry from the camp side though. Helps to be a righty. Been quite a while since I've been there, the pool could have changed since I last saw it - maybe you'd better wait for other responses!
If I remember correctly when you walk down the trail from the camp, there is a sign saying "Camp Pool". I honestly dont remember there even being a brook, but looking again at the map, I would say where I caught my fish was down river from the brook. Water levels msut have been different when I was there.Mmmmmm??? Not sure what you mean with regard to the sign - but using the brook as a reference point, are you talking about fishing above where it flows in or below? All the fish that we saw/hooked were near the exposed rock just out from the R side of the river (looking down stream) that is just ABOVE the brook.
