Andy Kurth and I typically go out for opening Saturday. No need to hit the water early. Water will be too cold early. There will be no green like pictured above Fast water will be out trout won't struggle to hold in fast expending too much energy for reward Targeting thermals is good idea. small springs feeding in like one above on the left could be loaded with trout. Fall holding places like this one will be too shallow and fast for an early spring morning. Deeper slower bottomed winter holding areas will be the ticket for success. Depending on how badly I am worn out I will be fishing with Zach on Sunday. We will be targeting wintering places for spinners on Sunday. Slow deep bends with thermals near. Some slow log jam busting to awaken sleeping giants is always fun on opener weekend.
