Opening Day Trout
« on: April 11, 2014, 06:28:01 AM »
Is anyone going on opening day for trout fishing? If so, where are you headed? What bait/lure are you aiming for? Do you keep or catch and release?

We're off to Spring grove in Glocester, going to have a couple setups of powerbait rigs, and small spinners. Hoping to hit our limit to keep (trout are my favorite fish to eat).

I also don't go out on opening day, unless I go somewhere to catch bass where there are no trout!

Anyone hoping to fish a river this year for opening day is going to have a tough time with the current and the water levels where they're at right now  :o
