2012 Vermont Soft (open) Water Fishing has started

Last week, March 21 to 23 we had a heat wave here in Vermont....mid 70's....and with that a ton of warm water species moved to the bank on Lake Bomoseen. Trout season does not open till April 14th (the second Saturday)....BUT it is legal in Vermont to fish year around for panfish and pike....Sunny and 70 with the ice being out for a week....those flies I'm tying are going to wait!
Tina (my girl friend) and I fished with little 5 foot 4 lb rods, pencil bobbers and champlain nymphs and HAMMERED them....we had an AWESOME time....got a sun burn on the legs and arms and caught fish almost every cast....
