Rolled out of bed with a miserable cold this morning, said I was not going anywhere, wife said she wanted to try broiling trout, to get ready anyway. So I did, and as the temperature passed 63 degrees, headed out 1PM. Stopped at same Natchaug pool I did well at last year, a muddy torrent. Took one lone rainbow, after a while headed west to smaller streams. Considered the Mount Hope but water was in the trees. The Willimantic would be worse so ended up at the Fenton, nobody fishing my favorite pool. Lost two but then netted three nice browns. Headed to another spot and teased out a final brown, wife is broiling the two biggest as we speak. Not a lot of people out this afternoon, plenty of parking at the usual popular spots.

My dad was afraid to wade the Hope yesterday because of the high level/flow. He managed a few from his hot spots. I had the kids at the club for a wet derby. Breakfast was great though.

Cedar Lake in Chester was tough! We worked hard pulling flies on lead core. Average was 10-12" too, WTF ! I did lose a decent 18-20"er at the boat horsing it when I shouldn't have been. My dad was pissed! lol .

Another opener in the books. Great time was had by all. We waited the rain to stop, drank coffee at the house then went for breakfast at the VFW...started at Jeremy at 9, then the ledge, finished at Salmon. Between the 5 of us who fished, everyone caught and released over 10 trout apiece, a few hit the stringer that were not gonna make it..Salmon was the toughest...swollen chocolate milk, but thats where we usually just go to "socialize".. beerchug biggrin

A lot of 12" brookies and some FAT browns of the same length.
All agreed the state did a good job stocking.

With the sun coming out, turned out beautiful. The least crowded opener in my life time of doing opening day 45 years...

Yea....filled it out a few days ago. I answered that I didn’t fish opening day due to the $5 Trout Stamp...another CT “Tax”, and now a DEEP “Tax”.
