A friend of mine was fishing on the Piermont Pier last Friday, and had no hits. He had heard that fish were being caught in Croton, and tried his luck. Honestly, I didn't even know that people were allowed to fish from the Pier still. I remember back in the 1992, my brother and I used to catch bunches of schoolies on blood worms and less than a hundred foot cast from the north side.
The weather is above freezing, and these few days have warmed plenty of water up in the streams. As they flow into the main part of the river, the Hudson will be warming. Soon. Soon. Soon. I pray, soon.
