After my canoe trip on Saturday I planned a few easy to access fishing spots for Sunday morning for a friend and I. Since I was getting married at 3pm I chose a few spots I knew of, then chose a few spots on the Mill River on Routes 5 and 10. They were simple spots with a pull off by a bridge and walk a few hundred yards in either direction. My alarm clock went off at 4:40am, but I was already awake. I woke up at 3:45am excited to hit the rivers. I jumped out of bed and made sure I had everything. I keep all my fishing gear in my truck anyway so I just needed the camera and a canteen of water. We took off at 5am for northern Mass. My buddy isn’t a trout fisherman at all. He’s a bass fisherman through and through. I gave him a bare 1/8oz Mepps Aglia, which is the “money maker” lure for me. Within minutes he hooked into a good sized trout. Unfortunately (on purpose) I left my camera in my truck so that photo was never taken.....oops. I got the camera and was just in time for another fish. I moved around the brook and missed half a dozen fish on short strikes. At about 8am we decided the fish are no longer fooled by our presentations and we moved on. We traveled to a few spots but the water was to low so we eventually made our way to the Mill River in Whately and Hatfield. I planned 3 stops to fish there. The first stop was promising, I had a few follows but no strikes on the upstream side of the bridge. I walked to the downstream side and that’s where the action was. I had a few follows and finally hooked into a fallfish. A fallfish is the largest fish in the minnow family that can grow up to 3lbs and 20in. Mine was no where near that but he put up a good fight. I walked the banks a bit and saw a submerged tree and knew that was the ticket. I threw the cast and instantly a rainbow was on the line. Very feisty and light colored. Generally light colored rainbows mean they are wild, that’s my guess with this one. Down the bank I caught another fallfish and that was the end of the fishing for us. The second stop proved uneventful for us and the third stop I couldn’t find a place close to park. In total we got 5 fish and had many laughs.
