After surviving the holidays I decided to get out there and fish on New Year’s Day. The weather was about twenty degrees above normal at a balmy fifty degrees. Truth be told I had some time and probably would have headed to the river if it was only thirty degrees as well.
I took my time getting ready on Tuesday morning, no need to rush this time of year. After a quick breakfast, I decided to head to one of my favorite rivers which are loaded with trout but also very challenging to actually land fish.
I took Friday off of work, ran a quick errand and headed to the Swift River in central MA. It’s been extremely hot and humid during the second half of summer and I needed to get to cooler water and some good size fish. It was a cloudy morning in the high 70’s and there were threats of a possible thunderstorm. I got to the river around 10:30 AM which was later than I hoped but some things can’t be helped. When I arrived, the small lot was pretty full so I decided to park across the street.
