Anyone know how the rivers are doing? Squannacook and Nissi settling down yet? Want to do some wading Sat. morning.

Got in late last night but drove by the Nissitisit... I could see the whitewater in the dark as I drove over it. The falls in Pepperell were throwing mist like Niagara. The Squanacook is settling down a little below the harbor but not enough to consider wading it.

I'd assume stillwaters down toward the cape would be the best bet. The upriver stretches of the Merrimac are producing shad right now, but last time I saw that it was in the trees.

Good weekend to brush up on casting... anyone interested in a casting clave?

Nate and I are hooking up in the am. for some trouting. Am going to check Shawsheen in Andover tonight to see if it's down enough for some casting. If not maybe Whites. If you have any better ideas, give me a buzz. We both have only the morning available, so that limits distance somewhat.

Probably too late, but back cove on whites is a very good bet for am fishing.
