Got Out of Work Early
« on: May 22, 2020, 03:39 PM »
My office closed early today due to the long weekend - - which kinda "crept up on me" (since I had been thinking Memorial Day wasn't this coming Monday but the following one) - - so I was able to go fishing for an hour and a half along four stretches of the West Housatonic between Hungerford Street and Clapp Park in Pittsfield this afternoon.

Sunny, blue skies, 80 degrees.  Stream surprisingly low for May.

I caught an 11" brown below the Hungerford Street "falls."

Nothing below the Greendale bridge.

I landed a 12" rainbow in my recent honey hole belowthe Barker Street bridge.

Nothing beneath the Clapp Park trestle.

Nice afternoon.  I'd be quite pleased with a rainbow and a brown. 
It is understood that fishing licenses, gas, bait, etc., all cost money, but try not to let a limit of trout be your only gauge for success. Ben Nugent, (NH F&G) Regional Fisheries Biologist
