Spring has sprung; but where are the fish?
“And finally, I fish not because I regard fishing as being terribly important, but because I suspect that so many of the other concerns of men are equally unimportant, and not nearly so much fun.”
Spring has sprung. Never mind that it is spitting snow as I write this. The weather man says it will be sunny by the time you read it. Such is the nature of spring in the Sierra.
The spring bite, if it hasn’t already arrived, will be coming to a lake or stream near you soon. It is time to shake off the shack nasties and get out to your favorite fishing hole.
Our local lakes are open for fishing. Some streams opened earlier this month and most of the rest will open the end of the month. Be sure to check the regulations before you go; some spawning streams will not open until the end of May.
