I know I am going to get alot of "what are you thinking go striper fishing idiot" but I really am hungering for some 4wt action. Is anyone interested in going?

Quite the opposite Nate, I, Terry and others have been talking about connecting with flyfishing's roots a lot lately. I am hopelessly addicted to the "help me" bend that the recent flurry of pig stripers have put into the rod, but I am only a whim away from a stream or pond where some finesse is called for.

Where are you going?

I could be up for several places. Semi-local though. Maybge some thing new. I have never fished the Millers or Westfield. I could also go for an all out commitment to the deerfield.

Fall Trout and Salmon - If water temperatures are cold enough, MassWildlife’s fleet of stocking
trucks will hit the pavement on September 25 to distribute more than 60 thousand trout and 200
broodstock salmon across the state. Each of the five MassWildlife Districts will receive more than
12 thousand trout, comprised of 53 thousand rainbow trout between 12 and 14 inches long, 7
thousand foot long brown trout and 200 brookies measuring 18 inches. The Districts will also be
allocated 40 broodstock salmon from the Roger Reed Salmon Hatchery in Palmer. These fish will
weigh-in at between 1.5 and 3 pounds each. For stocking locations visit the MassWildlife
webpage at or call your local District office: Western 413.447.9789;

Nate, I will be hitting the Nissitisett this week only because I can't get free long enough to reach the salt.

I just remembered that this time of year after heavy rains the Landlocked Salmon make their way up from the Wachusett Resevoir to the Stillwater and Quinnipoxit Rivers. It can be very challenging fishing.

Sully, what time where you thinking? Are you interested in company.

Yeah sure Nate if you want to go. I'm going to the Nissi tomorrow morning for a couple of hours. Then back to the honey do list and hockey. I'm leaving the office for the day but you can reach me by email at home tonight.

That sounds great what time and where do you want to meet. You can try me at home 617-864-4251 but you most likely won't get me. Just email me back and let me know.
