    In New Jersey, Yes. I believe that the April 1st reference was for another state.
    Possibly NY?

    aww ok. I wont go on opening day anyway as it's just too crazy. I think I will hit KLG this weekend. Most years I just wait until mid april to start fishing when all the crowds go away, but Im really itching this year. Boring Winter I guess

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

    I live in Southern NJ, but I fish opening day in PA with approximately 15 friends, so when were on the water we're standing elbow to elbow with our friends and not someone who doesn't know stream etiquette. Plus when your friends are fishing that close it's easier to ball-bust... I am taking my seven y/o son out of school on Monday to award him for his behavior by taking him fishing in PA (Ridley Creek). This way on Monday there won't be any crowds and there will still be alot of fish for him to try and catch. And he will be spin fishing and after he gets a few under his belt that day he will be fly fishing with a nice little 2wt. I'm counting down the minutes to see he grin with his first catch of the day. This is what it's all about, seeing a new member in the fishing community. And there grin from ear to ear letting you know there hooked.

    I make weekly trips(mid week) to ny for steelhead all season but on PA's opening day I make it a weekend trip and enjoy a reduced number of people on the water.

    Unless I can spend opening day with my father i get out of dodge

    I agree on the mass slaughter. Got any secret spots you'd like to share?

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

    I've been taking my kids and a few other families with me for the past several years. I know it's crowded and people keep their limit ect. but hey...I have a good time seeing the kids have a good time.

    I guess if I had no kids to take I may pass on the morning or find a remote place to fish thats less crowded.

    I fish the PA opening day on the Big Bushkill at my cabin. I skip the NJ opener.

    The PA one is a tradation with my Grand Pa who passed.

    I have missed only one in the last 33 years.

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

    I never used to get excited about opening day because most of the places I fish are not restricted to "trout season", but since I live on the Ramapo River in Oakland, NJ just downstream from the Glen Gray Bridge and have 2 young kids it's a no brainer. Unlike my dad I enjoy fishing and am very glad my enthusiasm for it has rubbed off on the kids and I would rather spend the day on the water with them than at the pool or Six Flags any day...
