No Foolin: Trout season is here but opening day is going to be a wet and cold one. We know that won’t stop the “serious” trout anglers out there but the reality is that snow and cold weather is on tap for the opener. Stream anglers (not pond fishermen) need to know that DEC has a new trout stream plan that begins this season. Check it out here: https://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/111015.html. Also, the new regulations guide is only available online at this time but printed copies should be out soon.
Turkey season is now just around the corner and if you’ve been watching birds, it’s likely you’re seeing large flocks. That’s common for this time of year but for the most part will likely not be the case by the time the spring gobbler season begins on May 1. Keep an eye on them birds, watch for the flocks to break up and hopefully you’ll be able to pin-point a tom to hunt on opening morning; or better yet, the youth hunting weekend, which is April 24-25. Also, in-person hunter education is now taking place along with the online course. -Dan’l
