First time ever

For the first time in my 27 years of existence I will not be on the water at 8:00 am on the opening day of trout. I sort of burned my self out on trout fishing the last few years and don't have any desire to fish. I plan on taking my son out for a little bit after the temperature gos up a little.

I will instead be scouting for turkey, and patterning my new build.

Maybe a little be later on my desire to fish will come back but for right now I have none.

Anyone else not going out?

Re: First time ever

Not a fan of opening day at all , just doesn't have that much appeal to me .
Fishing is supposed to be relaxing ,not dealing with crowds of people.
I will also be out in the woods , tho I already got a pair located
,need to find a few backup spots .
Then I'll probably get some work done at camp.
Supposed to be great weather.

Carve your successes in stone ,
Leave your failures in the sand.

Re: First time ever

I was a year round trout fanatic for many years. I lost interest around the time they changed the limit to 5. Never got the desire back again.

Why did that make you change your mind

Re: First time ever

Haven't fished PA since 2009....


If the girlfriend wasn't in I'd consider going...just for something to do...

I miss fishing...but I'm somewhat spoiled by my out of state ventures....


I will hit the water probably on my next days off...

My buddies son is 2 or so...he doesn't fish and as soon as he doesn't need diapers I might have to take him fishin!

wish I didn't have to travel so far for wild trout...Michigan has me super spoiled...not a stocked trout in the stream but a trout on every good cast...

Re: First time ever

This will be my first opening day in about 3 years. I used to go out religiously on the first day until the kids came along 17 years ago. But priorities change as you get older and the kids got involved in spring sports and I only fished the first day maybe 5 times since then. Well, now that my kids are older and kind of breaking away, I find myself with a little more time on my hands.

The horizon is your starting point.

Wait till May, the streams will much less crowded.
The weather is nicer and there will still be plenty of fish to catch.
Your not alone here.

Re: First time ever

I used to be a hard core trout fisherman even fly fished for over 20 years but gave that part up but do fish occasionally if I buy a license.

My name is Moss and i'm a turkey huntin' addict
