I really like the sound of: "Walden this time of year you will see big browns cruisingthe shoreline. A large streamer could be the ticket."
Now I know we're on the "Trout" forum, but I have another Freshwater question. What is the situation with Pike on the Conn. River? Is there a Fall season? Are there shore oppertunities? I ask this, because my dad & I used to do some mineral hunting in Western Mass. One time we were up in the Rowe/Zore area, we were parked in a turn-out near the river early one morning (I think it was early fall) & I walked down to the bank & saw Huge fish breaking the surface. I would guess ~20#, my dad said that they were probably Northern Pike, but was not sure.
