Trout Opener True Sign of Spring

For me, this Saturday April 27th is the true start of Spring…

Michigan opens the trout season.

After a long winter, I am ready.

However, the fishing opener weekend is always in competition with my other priorities:  coaching my kids and a bunch of whirling dervishes on the soccer pitch AND my wife, Colleen’s, birthday.

So, my time on the river will have to wait.

Perhaps this is a good thing.  My chances of encountering a blizzard, and high water the color of chocolate milk will go down the longer I wait.

Believe me – as you can see below in the pic…this is what “Spring” trout fishing can look like in the Great Lakes…
