I hit a Connecticut freestone for a few hours during a brief break in the wind and cold. I landed some fish, and the hardest-fighting one of all was this one.
It’s a sucker fish and was about 14″. For a moment, I thought I had on a big brown. I mean, this fish just would not give up.
I don’t have much experience with such fish, since I don’t target them. I did notice last year that they seem to spawn in the spring, and, therefore, are traversing the rivers. I only see these fish during the early spring.
Does anyone have a lot of experience with this fish? Do they spawn in the spring? Thanks!
