General Information: Well, we’ve had a good run on the Delayed Harvest waters, beginning last October and barely slowing down through the exceptionally mild winter. But all good things must come to an end [at least for a few months], and so it is with the DH streams. This Saturday, 6-2 is “opening day” for catch and keep on the streams that have been catch and release only for the past 8 months. If you choose to fish on Saturday remember it’s kids under the age of 16 years until noon, no exceptions! You’ll probably still find a few fish for the next couple of weeks, but figure on the pickings being slim. Oh, and if you do go on “opening day” you’re still welcome to practice your catch and release philosophy.

Projected Conditions: I suppose this will be my last Delayed Harvest report for a few months at least, let’s see what the boss can find for me to do in the meantime.
