Quentin Well, the tiger muskies are sterile so the only ones in the rivers are the fish that "escaped" from ponds and lakes where they were stocked. They put them in a couple lakes here, and both lakes ultimately drain into the Housatonic. I guess if there are any in the CT river they are probably few and far between.

Dble Haul I'm sure it's a possibility, but if they are in the CT River there is no reference to them in any DEP or natural resources volume that I have (and I have a lot). But if they are there, I wouldn't mind catching them.

Quentin Mark, there are tiger muskies (pike/muskie hybrid) in the section of the Housatonic where I fish. Haven't connected with one on the fly rod, but the possibility is there. I'm sure there must be some in your stretch of the Housy too, and probably in the CT river as well.

fishheadfred mostly hang into them while drifting minnows for pre-spawn bass.....not the true purisits way, but effective

fishheadfred Really? we have caught several muskies out of tygart creek in greenup county and just thought it was the norm...granted, they haven't been any keepers in the bunch, but we have come close a couple of times......if we know they are in the area, we use a simple 25lb test mono leader and it takes them a bit to chew through...i didn't really ever think about it being an accomplishment

Dble Haul Chris- Muskies on the flyrod are quite an accomplishment, even if they are on the small side....congrats! That's one for the life list for sure.

Adrian Way to go Mark!

Time on the water plus a generous helping of angling talent brings its rewards.

We're getting into that time of the year when there are not enough days in the week (let alone a week-end) to enjoy all of the different fishing opportunities out there in fresh and salt.

What a wonderful dilema

More Pike Action

I may have solved another piece of the spring pike puzzle....either that or I'm just getting rewarded for my time invested in learning more about these critters.

I landed four and lost two others yesterday under bluebird conditions and barely a ripple on the water. I don't think that it will last much longer though....water temps are moving upwards fairly quickly here.

Adrian, your fly (what's left of it) worked well again, as did my Pike Candy in the perch colors.

Nice to kick the skunk out of the boat in convincing fashion. Now with the warming water the smallmouth action should start becoming more reliable.
