    Fishing 2018

    I had a good ski season, especially March and April.

    Stoked to start fishing.

    Mike and I went for a row at the East Branch on 5/6. Neither of us expected to catch much just wanted to get out. Bass were invisible save for a 6" largemouth I caught. But we did find some good yellow perch action and caught about a dozen between us:

    Today we went to the controlled river section of the EB and found recently stocked brown trout:

    Feisty rainbow trout:

    and a few beautiful holdover browns:

    Enjoyed wading in the river but damn some of the rocks were deadly slippery.

    Congrats on the browns and rainbows JimG! Love browns and rainbows so much, all we have up here in mid-central to northern Maine are brooktrout and landlocked salmon....have to drive a hundred+ miles for browns/rainbows. Yeah, aluminum studs/bars are the more environmentally friendly but I definitely need a wading staff as well. Such a PITA to need practice in wading/walking in waders...somehow my fore/aft balance needs practice, especially in the pushy currents even of many small brooks up here. Nice shortsleeves....the areas where I like to go up here....temps have yet to stabilize in the low 60s (middays).

    Think everybody could use a week of bonefish in Los Roques olout88...y/n?

    Yeah wading staffs always wind up being a PITA; I just need some felt soles for my waders for extra traction. But doing that slippery rock dance in the middle of the river and almost filling my waders seems like a yearly right of passage.

    Early on it was chilly but by noon it got warm and I could fish in shirtsleeves. That water is always icy cold right through summer though; fed from the bottom of the reservoir upstream.
