Smelt start the end of April through to May 10th or so...sometimes later. I have to mention/ask....Please try and stay out of the brooks when going after them, there is an extremely high number of smelt eggs that get destroyed because of smelt dipping. The eggs are white and are attached to the bottom of the stream.

Caplin usually start to show up on our beaches around mid-june to the third week of june....look for a high tide just near nightfall.
