The spring bite is just around the corner
—Roderick Haig-Brown, “Fisherman’s Spring,” 1951
Spring is here and it has brought the rain and snow that winter lacked.
That is a good thing — a very good thing.
These March rains have been a blessing on many levels; the effect on our fisheries is just one of them.
It is simplistic, but true, to say that more water equals more fish habitat. And more fish habitat equals more fish.
