We are now one month into the 2012 open season for trout. I confess a little trepidation as the season began, wondering what would be the impact of Tropical Storm Irene on our local waters. And what would be the impact of our dry winter?
The second of these questions is working itself out nicely. The season started with the lowest, warmest water, and some of the best mayfly hatches I’ve ever seen in the first three weeks of the season.
