Shhh. Keep Quiet, I’m Fishing in Long Lake!

Mud Pond

Locals love spring fishing. It’s quiet, the working summer season hasn’t zapped every extra minute of free time. It’s still early yet and while the black flies are out, they are still in their dumb, confused stage, so not quite the venomous monsters expected to hit in a few days. So it’s time to get out and hit the secret fishing spots around the area. With so many abundant waterways to explore there’s plenty.

Reports and tidbits from facebook posts include “Brookies are hot. Down deep in the river eddies.”

“I saw a 12 pounder pulled out”

“Love the sunsets at my secret fishing spot.”

It’s a great time of year, and time to get out. Whether you fish from the shoreline or a boat, it’s the best time to get out and relax.

Prize money is presented to the first three largest fish in three categories to the adult/child team which catches them.
