                                          "A CASUAL SUMMER"

                                                                  ~  AUGUST 2016  ~ 


 The other day, I forgot exactly where, I overheard one man telling another man “as long as it doesn’t rain, I don’t care how hot it gets!”.  I was a little taken back by the statement, as if rain was an alien being. According to the DEC, we are and have been for some time now in a drought.  Reports of low river levels across the state, stories of dead fish in sections of the Croton system and advisories not to fish certain rivers have reached me. I declared a sabbatical from fishing for trout this summer, kind of give the fish a break and not stress them any more beyond Mother Nature. Its up to each and everyone of us to make that decision. I did try my hand at some Sun fish the other day and had some fun. Hopefully cooler weather & temperatures will return and some much needed rain will fall on us.  As for the guy who doesn’t like the rain, obviously he’s not a fisherman.

Our meeting schedule will begin next month.  Our first speaker will present his trip to Montana. I was scheduled to go to Ireland this month, but that trip was cancelled due to a family emergency. Maybe next year!  If anyone did anything they would like to present at a meeting please email me, my address is on our webpage under “governance”.  Any fishing or conservation related picture please send them to Phil Kee to post on our site. Enjoy the rest of the summer, be SAFE, and see you in September!


Tight lines!!
        Tom Walsh,  President
