A Late Spring... 

     As I write the May President’s Line, it is April 29th and Spring has finally arrived here on Long Island.  It has been a cold & wet season so far which is not so good for the fisherman, but is good for the trout.  The water level on the Carmans River is good with all of the rain that we have had the last two months.  Hatches on the Carmans River have been sporadic at best.  Surface activity of feeding trout is really just starting.  In the next few weeks, Southaven County Park will again become lush and green in all its splendor.  It is a beautiful place to fish!

Sadly, April was also accompanied with the passing of Gil Bergen, the long-time manager of Connetquot River State Park.  He was hired there in 1945 before the property was donated to New York State.  “Friends of Connetquot" are currently in the process of collecting funds for the creation of a memorial honoring his work in Preservation & Conservation of the park lands and the fostering of outdoor activities.  More to follow in the Chapter’s newsletter.

Bob Lindquist will be at the May meeting tying up some of his favorite trout flies. Bob is a professional fly tier and has spent many years fishing the Carmans River. It will be a great evening. We will also have some food again this month (hopefully) so bring a dish or desert to share if you can. We will be selling raffle tickets for the awesome bamboo fly rod to raise funds for stream work on the Carmans River.

 See you at the meeting or on the River!
 

     Tight lines!!

        Tony Ertola,  President
