Back to my usual warm water spot on the Cannon. Bite is finally starting. They are not spawning yet but getting ready. My fear was more rain before I can get out next which would raise the river.

Looks like a good outing. I've never targeted them before, but would like to get into some. Any pointers?

"Trout."
"Why trout?"

Those are very beautiful looking, actually.

Cannon River and her tribs. Rocky spots off to the side of a run. Live crawlers are a must. Maybe it can be done with a fly. To be honest, at least for me they are harder to find than trout. But once you do find them - jackpot! You will be catching big fish almost every drift. Now through mid-May will be prime time.

Growing up I would fish Redhorse sucker all the time. I would put on a big crawler with tons of split shots to get the bait near the bottom in the swift current and just wait for a tap of the rod. I would catch all sorts of fish including the occasional trout. The Redhorse were in a small river and the nearest classified trout water was about 5 miles downstream.
I have always believed that fishing for brook trout is a spiritual thing and that those who engage in it sooner or later are touched with its magic. -Sigurd F Olson
