I am working on a new event for April out in the Berkshires. If it all works out, we will meet up with some local talent out in the western part of Massachusetts to fish trout streams. With all this snow, high water might mess things up so we might consider coordinating this with the Spey casting gathering and hold that out on the Connecticut while casting for brood stock salmon. That way MA license holders will not need to purchase an additional out of state license.

Another option is to hold the spey clave on the Merrimac in April, and use the NH license later for bronzebacks on Winnepesaukee in late May.

We will have some real talent on hand for the Nor'easter Spey clave, once I get things worked out I will post the great news!

RI Salmon

Juro, and friends, if the weather ever gets to 40 I am going salmon fishing in the Wood River, here in RI. What say Capt. Bob Hines are you with me? Remember when we fished year around at Fishing Valley? The salmon are hungry.

I intend to hit the Joizey shore in March - and probably start bugging the twinks in the Housy estuary around that time too! April is Hendrickson time further upstream in the fresh and thats supposed to be one of the best hatches of the year.

So, goal number one is land a striper before Wilmington

Boston television said the salt water temp is 36 +/- in open water. Art, you had to rethink 38 degrees, huh?
