Now is the time. Most rivers and streams have been stocked (except for the Millers and and a few others as of 5/13, the Millers being way to high to stock) and the weather is going to be grand over the weekend into next week. The Ware has fish and we had them on but couldn't land them and the major and minor rivers in western Massachusetts got fish this week. The Squannacook and the Quinnie also got theirs. I'll be heading out west of the Connecticut River and fishing Williamsburg's Mill River and then hitting the MB of the Westfield the same day. I can't wait. Try to fish a place that is new to you and you will not regret the experience. For those that enjoy the thin blue line experience Try Willard Brook and Locke Brook in Ashby. I fished the latter 5 decades ago and caught native brookies in a very remote setting.
Try to fish this weekend. I saw hundreds of caddis on the Ware today!!!
