There is an expended Regional Voice section in the magazine where you can check up on all the work that Fish & Game does around the country on your behalf.
This season across the board we’re picking there’ll be more larger fish and some of those will be potential giants.
This prediction is based the largest beech seeding event in forty years having occurred last autumn.
Such an event results in plagues of rodents because of an abundance of food and, as we all know, trout love to eat mice and rats that find their way into the water – it enables the fish to put on size very, very quickly!
