Overwhelming water in the Blackberry

NORTH CANAAN — Brian Kinney of Bristol was at Beckley Furnace in North Canaan, trying to get his white beadhead Wooly Bugger down into the swollen, discolored Blackberry River.
Kinney said he always comes to the Blackberry for opening day. This year he was poised and ready at 5:30 a.m., waiting for the official kick-off at 6 a.m.
And it was raining.
“River came up about two feet” he said at 9:30 a.m. “Terrible fishing.”

Warm temperatures on a low-key opening day

LAKEVILLE — The weather was warm but rainy on  Saturday, April 13, the first day of general regulation fishing in Connecticut. Turnout was somewhat less enthusiastic than normal at area fishing meccas, even less enthusiastic than it is in years when there is still snow on the ground and a sharp bite in the air.

Community invited in to enjoy Lime Rock Park

LIME ROCK — Lime Rock Park is making a special effort this year to invite the community in, and perhaps change some minds about car and motorcycle racing on the track. 
The track owners have been in litigation with the town of Salisbury for a couple years now over owner Skip Barber’s request to state regulators that there be some Sunday racing allowed. A court injunction from the 1950s strictly forbids Sunday racing (in part because the track is right across Route 112 from Trinity Episcopal Church).

In which our seasoned angler shares some secrets

Saturday, April 13 is the opening of the 2019 trout season in Connecticut.
That’s a little misleading, actually. Trout Management Areas like the Housatonic and Farmington rivers are open year-round. Whether or not they are fishable is another question.

A fisherman’s plea: Bite me

Are you ready for some fishing?
I am.
Connecticut’s general regulations say that trout season opens on Saturday, April 13, but Trout Management Areas are open all year. New York state opens Monday, April 1. Massachusetts is mostly year-round, except where it isn’t. (Check the respective state websites for details, lest you run into a fish cop.)
So the real question is this: Where is it feasible to fish right now?
