Steven Hawley’s “Cracked The Future of Dams In A Hot, Chaotic World” chronicles our dam building history and how it’s time to free our rivers. Every page is a gift if you care about wild waters, trickling tributaries or appreciating nature left in peace.
April calls river herring, northern pike and volunteers to shallow waters. Gather by a herring run to see the miracle of migration then pack lots of shiny spoons for big Spring pike action as they head in to spawn and attack anything approaching their young. Oh there’s lots of action this month in skinny waters.
This month, we all lean a little west, looking for dark grey fins, small swirls, or flocks of black-tipped gulls tipping us off to striped bass movements east and north. Locals have their favorite spots so why not use their favorite lures? This month, go local for spring stripers with advice from the best local sources.
We are wrapping up, Fish Wrap style, another amazing year on the water and in the woods. We caught plenty of fish, learned about climate change (yes, it’s real) and lost a few favorite folks. Read it all in our Favorite Fish Wrap 2022 moments II and thanks, as always, for reading Fish Wrap. Happy Holidays.
