Trout rolling in soon
« on: Feb 28, 2018, 03:42 PM »
im fairly certain the stocking trucks will start making their rounds next week. the masswildlife trout stocking page just cleared the stocking list to make way for the spring stocking. next week the southeast district should start and i would imagine the central district would start the week after.

the fish have been decent size the last couple of years. my smallest trout last year was 14.5in and the biggest was 25in and i caught hundreds of fish. most of the fish were 16in or better.

Itís almost always the first full week in March unless delayed by ice

 There is always a fly hatch, Especially in early spring when the air temps get to 50s. I saw numerous black caddis I think swarming this past week... early but there are many other hatches that happen right at ice out.  I like nymphs and scuds this early anyway. Scuds are the sure fire bet for brookies.... Its my go to early ...

I can add that I picked a few dozen night crawlers in my back yard last night for a trip up north. Might be the earliest I have ever seen them out.
Just add water.
