Would the Black River between Carthage and Watertown be good or the Oswegatchie below the dams? How about Black Lake where the river runs in?

Your stream brookie is very intriguing. It appears to be at least 20" or bigger which I would think (others may know better) is by far the biggest brookie taken from a river or stream in many, many...

Trout have spent months not seeing much food aside from a few stone fly nymphs. When the first nymphs of the season start stirring then they do. That's usually Hendricksons or sometimes Quill Gordons...

It'll be a zoo but Ninemile Creek just west of Syracuse is pretty consistant on opening day. The only fly you need is a sz. 12 olive scud. You could try a little brookie creek with worms too.

I certainly would not go up to the ADKs. Streams will be icy, high and very cold. Ponds will still be iced over. I'd stay downstate for quite a while. Ponds will have ice for at least 2 weeks and...

Rural coyotes show a healthy fear of humans. It's a few urban coyotes that become habituated towards humans that are the problem. But I'm sure you're suburban neighbours would gladly accept the...

I bet I've shot far more coyotes than you will ever shoot. So thanks for the invite but I doubt there is anything you can teach me.

So in your way of thinking if only someone who thought it wrong would only appreciate the work and skill involved and hang out with a bunch of coyote hunters they'd see their error.:rolling:

Last year I caught (but didn't land) a rainbow that was pushing 10 lbs. on a #4 Yellow Marabou Muddler. It was quite a gong show trying to land it in my tube with a tiny net and 8' 5 weight...

Little over a month to go. Is this the year you'll be on the water opening day?

I've seen the number at 38,000. It's an educated guess. Up here they estimate there are 4,000 living in Metro Toronto which is the same number I've seen listed in the Adirondacks.
