Nice Brookie Nate!

Well Nate and I hit the Shawsheen this AM. Air temp was 32 deg, water not much better.
Water pretty cold and high. Beautiful run though. We got nada there, but what a spot. I could picture a Salmon or Steelie shooting up there from the Merrimack if only the dam dams weren't there.
Next we hit a small pond called Berry Pond in Harold Parker State Forest (No. Andover). Nate brought a kayak and circled the pond while I cast from shore. I had quite a few rises to aim at but couldn't interest them. Nate hooked up with a trout which turned out to be a greater then 12" brookie. Probably a holdover. Nice fish, saved us from PU.
Nice morning. Getting warmed up. Don't forget high tide Friday on Bass River mid afternoon.
