RE:Mass. trout fishing
Thanks for the report, my mind has been pointing to freshwater lately.
Where are you chasing salmon - without giving away your secrets, are you talking MA brood stock ponds, Connecticut River, etc?
I am looking for some riverfront to fish where I can bring a big Spey rod and fish for big salmonids. The Merrimac is pretty much a spring thing and the NH licenses are still a little prohibitive especially for such a short season.
