Trout Season Opens In Western New York

True, it is Dyngus Day and it is also April Fools Day. But for anglers, there is another reason to get excited for April 1. Today is the opener for trout season!!

Before I started to work on the morning show, I wold be up early every April 1 to try to get to the best spots on the streams that I could find. On a good weather day, the fishermen would be almost elbow to elbow trying to reel in a big trout! This year brings some rain and even some ice in spots.

Opening day for trout and salmon fishing is April 1 with high, cold water and icy banks and streambeds anticipated which could make for a dangerous early season angling, particularly in northern areas of the state, Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Joe Martens today reminded.

One year I was given a parking ticket on my truck. I was so anxious to get to my favorite spot that I parked on a bridge above the Cattaraugus Creek! To make it worse, I didn’t catch a single fish, and it was so cold that ice was forming on the tip of my fishing pole as fast as I could reel in the line!!
