I've gotten several little trout in the Mush but that was when the water was higher... at least their numbers have been good. Now I'm just biding my time until mackerel season!

Been out 2 or 3 times a week since the season opened. Lots of fish but nothing of note aside from a few very nice pickerel. Looking forward to July and getting the kayak out on the ocean.

Been great so far... 2nd day of the season I got a nice chunky 17 inch Brookie on the Musquodoboit river. And lots of 8-12 inchers around home... Gotta love those Brookies!!

I haven't had much luck with anything yet lol, been out quite a few times for trout, pickerel, smallmouth, shad and only caught a couple of each (except no luck with the shad)

Haven't been going as much lately, now that I'm back on the dayshift I've got to get back into it and hope to have better luck in June

I had some decent shad action the first few weeks of may, then it got pretty quiet during the last few weeks.
Not bad trout action, although all were quite small.
I have to say that a beaded nymph (I recieved in a streamer fly swap I participated in) has been an excellent producer for trout.
The water has been really low though, I'm really happy to finally see some rain.
tight lines...

Well I have been out about 4-5 times a week since opening day (on spring breakup) Went after Salmon, Browns, Stripers, Rainbows, Small Mouth, and Speckled Trout and the fishing up my way has been pretty good. Just waiting for the water to warm up a little but more then go after Muskie on a fly.

The pic in my avatar (same as the record in my sig) was on that show for 2 or 3 seasons apparently.. I don't watch TV though but they gave me a nice set of finger nail clippers
(they called it a line cutter hahaha)

Have had a real good spring have been out several times a week and took an entire week off in may to search the valley for brookies and shad. Have only beeen skunked a few times. Landed my first brown and numeous brookies and hundreds of white perch. Did some exploring and have found some very productive and promising new holes. I've even found two trout holes in Yarmouth co the trout aren\t numerous but good in size. Waters are low and warming up so it\ll soon be time to hunt the smallies. good luck all and glad to see ya all back
