Default Targeting Big Wild Brown Trout on the Rivers of Western Massachusetts

Merrimack River Valley Trout Unlimited February Chapter Meeting - Tuesday February 13th

Speaker - Tom Harrison of Harrison Anglers.

Subject - Targeting Big Wild Brown Trout on the Rivers of Western Massachusetts

We will be talking about targeting big wild brown trout on the rivers in western MA. We will discuss timing, tactics, patterns and our approach to putting these fish in the net. We have also been targeting pike on the fly the last few seasons and will discuss the fishery and our observations about getting these big predators to eat and hook up on fly tackle.

My brother Dan and I have guided full time since 2003. We spent our first four seasons in West Glacier, Montana guiding the Flathead Rivers (north, south, middle forks). While chasing the west slope cutthroat trout that live in the glacial waters of the Flathead, we had the opportunity to run 3-5 day wilderness fishing trips in the Bob Marshall Wilderness area south of Glacier Park. Our stint out west led to a chance of a lifetime to guide in La Junta, Chile. We guided the many great rivers and lakes of the northern Patagonia region. The Palena, Roselot, Figueroa, and Yelcho are all incredible glacial lake/river systems that are loaded with rainbows and huge brown trout. Although we had great experiences in other parts of the world, our loyalty remains here in Western Massachusetts, where we have guided year-round since 2007.

Meetings are held at Sweeney Post of the American Legion 251 Maple Street, Manchester, NH.

Guests and potential members are always welcome. The regular meeting starts at 7:00 pm, doors open at 6:30 pm and usually lasts until around 9:00 pm
