Maine: 3/26/10 - Open Water Fishing Season Now Open

Open Water Fishing Season Now Open

Maine's open water fishing season is underway on many of the state's lakes, rivers, streams and ponds. Ice fishing season, too, is still on going.

Historically the open water fishing season starts on April 1. A law signed by Gov. John Baldacci opened the season on March 25, a response to requests by anglers who wanted to go fishing because unseasonably warm weather created early ice outs throughout most of Maine.

2008-2009 Open Water Fishing Regulations apply until April 1, when laws outlined in the new combined fishing law book go into effect. The bill was sponsored by Maine Sen. Bruce Bryant, D-Dixfield, and Rep. Herb Clark, D-Millinocket.

Anglers should note that some water access sites may not be open until April 1 or later. As with every open water fishing season, roads on private and public lands may not be passable due to mud conditions. Please be respectful of private landowners requests to stay off their property until it is suitable for travel.

Also, anglers are urged to use caution on or near any body of water. Waters are extremely cold, and many rivers and streams are rushing because of rains and snow melt. Inlets and outlets on lakes and ponds, too, may be hazardous because of fast water moving in and out of them.

Now that's a first, spring is definitely coming quickly this year. I will admit, I can't wait for the feel of a slight tug on your line as your imagination runs wild with a huge lunker on the other end. It doesn't even matter if it's a little bitty sunfish. Years ago I taught the Monkey to say, when asked if he had caught anything when we hadn't, "We didn't go catching, we went fishing". Let the fun and games begin!

Monkey's first Brown Trout. A little on the small side, we let him go.

Sorry about the blood - his first Salmon. This gentleman hooked the fish on his flyrod and asked the Monkey for help bringing it in, I seriously almost cried as I watch. The man was so patient with him as he explained every move they needed to make. I've never seen the monkey look so proud.
