    How soon will you be doing any open-water fishing? 44 days for me, Opening Day of trout season. I could legally fish before then, in certain streams that are artificial-only, catch-and-release, but I always wait for April 1st. Anyone have any special destinations for fishing this year? or special plans, like learning a new method?

    I think it's impossible to fish without learning something new...part of why fishing is so great. I'm looking more towards getting the boat out on the water for largemouth. We went fishing this past weekend...rod guides and reels were freezing up on us though due to the wind chill. Caught a few fish...this week will be 70 degrees(talk about a change in the weather from one week to the next), so look forward to the first real day of fishing this year. Wont take the boat out or anything but we will go pond hopping. Put some of the fishing gear I acquired over the off season to the test. All hunting seasons I partake in officially ended last weekend, so focus is on fishing. The only trout fishing I do is with live bait and a spinning real, although we go at least once a year. Still lots of fun.

      I might actually get out for the first time this weekend. I've been wanting to try wintertime trout fishing for quite a while, and the weather is supposed to be great. I've never fished for anything this time of year (I don't ice fish), so it'll be something new for sure.

        I used to camp out by Naples Creek at the south end of Canandaigua Lake the night before April 1. Lots of good rainbow fishing.

          Once the water drops after this last round of storms I'll get the hankering to get out to the creek and wet a line. Generally unproductive this time of year, it's kind of an un-stocked stretch of water between two stocked trout fisheries when the season rolls around, but the main creek is warm. There're a couple of deep holes withing200 yards of me that might hold a carp or smallie this time of year, but the panfish won't move up the creek my way til later as far as I can tell. But the point is getting in the middle of the stream and enjoying an unseasonably warm day.

                  I don't know if you ever read the Syracuse Post Standard when you were around here, but their old outdoor writer J.Michael Kelly just put out a guidebook, Trout Streams of Central New York. He covers just about everything from south of Rochester over to Utica, from Tug Hill down through Cortland and Binghamton. He was one of the best; I think he even sold a few stories now and then to OL and FS.

                    I`m hoping to make it back to Alaska again to fly fish. Something always seems to come up. We`ll see how it goes this year.
