Jared, Dom, et. al -

I am game to revive the commuter trout sessions if you guys are. In fact I know you guys are based on emails and such. Walden and Whites work for me, tomorrow is supposed to be soggy but warm as heck. I would need to pick up a license during lunch somewhere.

I am totally unprepared gearwise so the first outing would be to iron the kinks out. I am thinking of bringing my kickboat along.

Let me know,

If you guys have warm enough conditions, take a look at the emerger patterns I put into the trout patterns section. Easy stuff and you won't regrete it...

Hey Guys,

Tell me more about the commuter trout sessions. I am working in Natick and maybe could join in.

Grabbed my license during lunch. On the way back was a lunchtime ff'er on Lex. Res. catching bluegill steadily at the edge of the beach. To his left were several chunky largemouths in the shade of the hardwoods. In the next clearing were what appeared to be trout on the surface chasing and snarfing bugs under the surface film.

Years ago I used to do well in the Lex. Res - in fact that's one of two places where night fishing for trout produced significantly better than daytime.

Anyone else ever try night fishing for trout?

Was there a guy standing beside him not fishing with a black shirt? That was me. ME and Grego might hit that at lunch this week.

Let me know, that's real easy for me to get to. Wouldn't the morning calm be better for trout rising? How 'bout evening before the mosquitos catch on in a week or two?

Juro --

Scheduling change at work...might be stuck at work until
VERY late....(on the plus side, that may mean dispensation
to arrive later on Tuesday morning...) I'll just call your cell
later, or try me at work.

Didn't make it this am but I stopped to take a peek at WHites, and WISHED I DID! Not much on the surface but I forgot just how beautiful Thoreau's other pond was. I can see a morning spent floating around casting to rises in the very near future!

Hint: I'm bringing the Sage to work tommorrow. Should be cooler trout weather at lunch.
