Many thanks to Colie Egertson for giving me a heads up to this development: there’s a one-mile trout stream in Western Massachusetts available to the public. Some private farmland was for sale and here’s what happened: The Massachusetts-Rhode Island Council and the Franklin Land Trust (FLT) have partnered to protect 108 acres and a mile
Alright, I’m finally in CA! Beautiful weather in the 70’s all week (sorry New Englanders!), and great scenery. I’ve even got a chance to look around bit as far as local fly shops go, and started getting some good tips on where I should start “slinging bugs”. I’m not really familiar with the trout water
Colie Egerston was kind enough to email me with a fishing report. He yesterday hit one of his favorite small streams to seek wild browns and brookies. Unfortunately, water conditions were less than ideal in terms of temp and color. But, he may try again on Saturday. And, for me, I’ve been tying some flies.
Thanks to a tip from a reader of this blog, I found some open water at a small stream that holds wild brookies and browns. I had only a few hours and followed the sound of running water to find it. A stunning place. I’m new to this stream and was struck by its beauty.
