Early Angling


by William Crisp


March is here and, on cue, the good people of America will start thinking about fishing again. It won’t be long that bacon smoke will be rolling out of the camps and residences along the Driftwood Branch, the First Fork and other creeks during the wee hours of the morning as anglers prep for a day on the stream.

Although April is the official start of the fishing season with the trout opener, March begins the official beginning of stream awareness and deer forgetfulness season. However, there is still angling going on for a few hardy souls in February and March; even if there isn’t ice.
