    Re: Do you fish opening day (trout) in your state?

    I like to walk through the local park and watch the kids have fun with their dads. It brings back old memories of the thrill I experienced as a kid, could not even sleep the night before, like the night before Christmas. But fishing for me, no.

    Hey rford,
    You are HYSTERICAL .
    Sure come on up. From about the location you describe that you want to "fish" I'm sure that the barrel report could be heard loud & clear at the DEC regional office on golf course road in Warrenstuckyville. Let me know how you make out & if the ECO's have developed a sense of humor yet .

    Seriously, I don't run into the opening day problems or random acts of stupidity that I think many of you do. Less people & more water, I love in the ADKs. "livin' the dream".
    Thanks for the chuckle, DH

    First of all , Since I fish all year ., I really don't consider it to be first day any longer., When I was young the anticipation was to much. I guess thats why I am into fly fishing the way I am today. But I started on the Broadheads at the age of 10 , And get to that stream on the opener when I can. " Just go a little later in the morning ".

    If you ever want too see a TRUE ZOO drive along the yellow breeches opening day , then stop down @ boiling springs PA childrens lake the parking lot is crammed with hotdog vendors, and people are stuffed along the shore and even though its really a big pond an armada of boats are out there jockeying for posistion the catch an release area starts right there I ride my motorcycle down and sit with a few of the other flyfishing regulars and have a few laughs @ the clowns and throw a few out dunkin worms in the catch an release area , Ill take photo's this year and post them

    Re: Do you fish opening day (trout) in your state?

    I have to admit- I go out and wonder as far away from the crowds as I can. I fish off and on for about an hour or so and then take the rest of the day to drive around and watch the mayhem. I love it when I see the once a year guy using his "light" saltwater spin gear to catch a 10 inch trout.

    Now that my son is coming of age (he'll be 4 this spring) I'll probably continue going but not to really fish- more like playing body guard for those who will end up mugging him if he did get a fish to net.

    Every year! Although I like to get out on a boat to avoid the crowds and hit some other species as well.

    yes, but I won' say where, since I've never seen another fisherman on the stream, and will probably stop going there if I do.

    Re: Do you fish opening day (trout) in your state?

    Thanks God we don't have an opening day in West Virginia. I've seen pictures of what it used to be like (full combat fishing) and I'll pass. Been a bad winter for me (because of work) but I usually fish 12 months a year. The truck chasers don't get their fix till Jan. and it stops in the summer then they get another fix around Oct. I don't get on their streams and most don't know about mine.
    But with the wild trout (Brookies and Browns mainly only a few reproducing Bows) here, there is no need to call off the dogs. The stocked trout folks get what they want and the rest of us get what we want. Catch 'um and throw 'um back till they are Monsters.

    Re: Do you fish opening day (trout) in your state?

    i usually fish stockies on a buddies land on opening day

    everywhere is packed with people with worms and there is no place o even wade ... so i usally wait until early may to fish public places because they still stock and there is less or no people there

    tight lines

    good luck fishing ...

    sincerly,
