Opening of Bass Season

This weekend marks the opening of Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass Season in New York.

So I went Trout fishing.

I am fortunate to live on a lake, so heading out fishing is very easy. Loon Lake has predominantly Smallmouth Bass, Yellow Perch, and Northern Pike. The lake gets very little pressure.

My kids take their kids out fishing, toss in a worm, and catch many pitch. The older grandkids cast lures for Bass. When I go with them, I spend my time trying not to get hooked.

I am also fortunate in that I have a beautiful Trout Stream, five minutes from camp— the North Branch of the Saranac Lake. Actually, the outlet of Loon Lake frowns down to Mud Pond; The North Branch frowns out of Mud Pond.

I tend to go out fishing just about every day. Yesterday, I caught a nice Brown Trout. Today, I caught a Brook Trout. At the same spot on the North Branch, just past
