Introduction to Trout Fishing
Spring in New England is the season of all things new - snow melting, birds chirping, and of course, the fish becoming more active as they stretch out of their winter slumber. Spring is also one of the best times to get outside, dust off your fishing gear and catch some trout!
Trout fishing varies widely depending on the area of the country (or the world) in which it's done. In this blog post, we'll take a look at some basic shore fishing techniques, and impart some knowledge on how to catch trout in the many ponds of New England!
All states in New England run stocking programs which ensure stable trout populations and give anglers great opportunities to catch trout in many ponds throughout New England. Your license dollars support these programs, so that all anglers contribute to the sustainability of New England fisheries. Most ponds in New England are stocked with trout in the spring, but many also receive fish in the fall. Take advantage of this, and be sure to monitor your local DFW website for stocking schedules!
