It was very windy and miserable, but for those of us who braved the elements, it was a very successful day. Both of my children had their limit of 5 by 9:30 am, and I had 4. Everyone seemed to do very well yesterday.

So this is the spin Penna. Game comm. is putting out there as an excuse for stocking less fish this year.'There are less fishermen so we only stock that amount of fishies'. Ol Fast talking j#w Eddie can screw the middleclass once again & the Morning Call will validate it. what a rag!

Fishing shoulder-to-shoulder for some fish that were just dumped in upstream?

Sounds real "outdoorsy".

Fishing is a great relaxing pastime. However, not on first day unless you can elude the hordes.

I love fishing! Hooking up the worm... ripping the guts out when the fish swallows the hook in too deep... But not first day... too crowded, too cold!

How many seasons do you think the public will pay for 8 inch stocked fish? 99% of the stocked fish are at that size. Read your ruler. I can catch them bigger in my fishtank in the living room of my house. Sorry but the math dont ad up. You can get 2 lbs. of salmon for 8 bux...hmmmm

It's all about the relaxation factor. In this day and age, everyone could use some now and then.

I will pay the license fee no matter what cost the F&G comm. puts it up to. It's a tradition for me since my father first took me when I was 4. I have passed that tradition onto my children, and every year they can't WAIT for the first day. It does not matter if we catch anything, they love spending time with their dad, catching fish just makes it sweeter.

That's great! It's good seeing you on Topix again.
We had some really good conversations and some of your posts would really make me laugh! It's always a pleasure. I remember your into the Philly's... I hope they have a good season.

Bigger fish??? hmmm everywhere i went the fish were a lot smaller this year than last year, and i have several friends that have said the same thing. The first day i caught 20 fish prior to catching one that was 11 inches. People really exaggerate the sizes. Gotta love fish stories

All's I know, I don't know where they get the fish from, but they taste like white moss. Even when they are in the stream for a while, 99% of the time I practice catch and release. If you want good tasting fish, try Wegmans.

LOL...A few years ago I went salmon fishing up in New York, for 2 years I caught nothing... all that money for license, gas, lucky my friends had a camper so that was free, now if I want salmon I shop at Wegmans....

Maybe it was a bad year, there are cycles in fishing as well, sometimes the Chesepeake bay is good sometimes not. Go up there this year you will do well.

Sounds great!! But after I get tired of fishing that means that I can't jump off of the boat and go swimming because of the sharks...:(
