Wachusett Salmon & Trout Details
Name:Wachusett Salmon & Trout
Created By:tunameltdown
Details:Sean and I decided to give bass fishing a break this weekend. Instead we traded our swimbait gear in for some of the smallest and lightest gear we own and headed up to Wachusett. As much as I love bass fishing I also love stalking and site fishing big fish in small water and there are only a few places and fewer times of the year to do it so we thought we would try to capitalize. We were on location first thing in the morning in the dark and started hearing and spooking fish right away. It was still dark out and spotting the fish before they spotted you was tough. As the morning progressed and it became brighter we were able to start identifying fish in the pools and pockets. Sean caught and released the first two small salmon of the morning. Meanwhile I was 30 minutes in trying to make a monster eat my offering. I finally upset him off enough for him to hit and after an incredible fight and airshow I had an awesome looking male landlock in the net. After a few quick pictures he was released to spawn and help continue the population. A few hours of stalking later and I got into another nice male which was also released after a few quick pictures.
We then decided to switch locations and try for some trout. On our way into the next spot we bumped into a nice guy who was leaving and after a quick chat he offered me some home made egg sacks and tells me to give them a try. Ok. Sean and I both rig up to use the egg sacks and on Sean's very first drift he gets bit. After a nice fight on ultra light tackle I netted for Sean one of the best looking brown trout I've ever seen in local waters, fish this pretty don't come from a stocking truck. After a few pictures it was also released.
