    opening day of trout season is one of those man's holidays, much like opening day of pheasant or shotgun deer season.....

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

    I dont want to get torn apart for this post but i think on opening day this year im going to use my spinning equiptment. Once i catch a bunch like that i will switch over to the fly gear.

    Im only going to do this because im still a newb. I just want to catch some fish then i can fly fish.

    I plan on mostly using my spinning gear for bass and lake fishing. I also plan on catching a bunch of bass on the fly rod. So my answer is yes i am going to fish on opening day.

    Do I fish opening day? Is a frog's ass water tight?

    Hell yeah I fish opening day I still get me excited for opening day almost as much as when I was a boy. Except now, I don't have the same expectations of catching trout I just enjoy being out and ejoying the day, especially when I see kids and families out having fun fishing. I started taking my oldest nephew (he'll be 10) out for the Southeast PA opener about 3 years ago so that's become a bit of a tradition. W get breakfast at the local rod & gun club, use bait and spinners- the whole nine yards and have a good time. I also go out by myself with the flyrod for the state wide PA opener and NJ's opener.

    I'm actually a bit surprised that a little more than 50% here actually don't fish opening day.

    Yeah, my wife and I do. Since we just started fly fishing this season, we may not fish, but we will go in 2011 on opening day. If our spot is too crowded to swing flies, we'll just watch the fun. It's like being in the front row of a comedy show. It's also nice to see Dad's with their kids, and Grand Dad's with their grandkids having fun. We go because it was tradition in my family. Fish or not, we go.

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

    Haven't fished opening day since my dad passed away almost 23 yrs ago. We used the fish the Willow in Livingston Manor every April 1st, staying in the motel that is right under Rte. 17 (the building is still there, and for sale, but it's no longer in operation). I remember several years fishing while it was snowing to beat the band...once we were snowed in for 2 days. We also ate every meal at the diner in town that at the time was owned by a Czech couple, which was great since my parents are Czech (I'm first generation American), and my dad enjoyed speaking the native tongue while out of the house. I look back at those days as being bonding time between my dad and I....and will cherish them forever.

    Gee Ward, don't you think you were a little hard on the Beaver last night?
