With continued cold and rain into May it’s felt like we’ve been on the verge of spring for at least a month now. Although it is snowing on Mount Washington as I write this we are on the verge of warmer weather and next week is looking, dare I say, pleasant.
Wild Brook Trout waters:
I finally got a chance to chase wild brook trout yesteday. I always try to balance exploration with check in’s on my older finds. After exploring a new stream with no luck I stopped by one of my favorite wild brook trout streams and landed three feisty fish in short order before the wife calle d me to ask what was for dinner.
With continued rain the Saco is still floatable for chasing large browns. Our last outing resulted in more missed fish than landed fish but that’s how it goes. This fishing is challenging, with only a few shots a day , but the rewards are worth the effort. I’ll be out again on Thursday with hopefully better results.
Right now the Andro has just dropped down from flood stage. We are crossing our fingers that it will continue to drop and be fishable by memorial day weekend. When the water does drop we are predicting good fishing for the hungry rainbows, brookies, browns and salmon that have been waiting for spring to come.
It’s getting to that time of the year for me where my personal fishing time is dwindling as I get ready for the busy month of June. I was, however, able to get out and explore some new water with my Good friend Brian last weekend. We were happy to find some wild fish in a less known stretch of water. I still have a long list of water I’m dying to explore . Most of which will need to wait until I get a day off.
Speaking of which, we do still have dates available but they are going fast so be sure to give us a call asap if you want to get in som e spring fishing.
