Let me know, if I should try it even if the water will be high, dirty and fast. What technique should I use.

Cheers

Depends on the weather and conditions... I catch some trout nearly everyyear on April 1st in the valley but normally the smaller feeder streams to the Annapolis.... and if u can get the the bank of the cornwalis you can catch fish.

I agree with NSY -
Go to some of the smaller side streams that flow into the Annapolis or the larger streams like the Cornwallis. They'll have fish. I lived near Middleton for a couple of years, always had good luck in some smaller feeder streams, not the main Annapolis, on April1.

One year Apr 1st was one of my best days, they were rising like mad to dry's (Adams), beautiful day and I didnt see that level of activity for another month. Another April we had to break through ice to get into the river (uninsulated waders, not recommended) and I had to stop every second cast to break ice off the rod. We left for coffee after the flies froze into solid blocks of ice.

It's fishing - it's always worth a try

Last year for instance I caught rainbows in Silver, 4 browns in the Cornwalis and a bunch of decent brookies on a Annapolis feeder brook all by mid afternoon on April 1st.... actually had five species caught by April 3rd.

even if you don't catch anything it is good to get out and swing a line helps with the off season shakes and tremors you have been experiencing lol

Yan, try streamers like the muddler minnow and the mikey fin, fish in tributary brooks of larger water. I bet you'll find a fish or two. If you're not outfitted for flies, try the ol' stand by,....hook, bobber adn a worm in the same locations. Try behind larger rocks in the streams and beside fast current eddies, under cut banks...etc. If your in a natural brook, consider throwing them back in for your next adventure. Then you'll know the fish are there for next time you want to go!

If you're going early in the season, I'd suggest mainly nymphs(stoneflies, or any other nymphs that are found on rocks in the stream) or streamers. Normally there won't be any hatches going on so they normally wont take dries. Do bring some dries in case an early hatch occurs.
