Anyone have any info on ice in Plymouth area? With all this warm weather and rain today thinking it will kill a lot of the ice.  Any chances there could be open water again tomorrow/this weekend?

Let’s hope so.

Haven’t fished all the water above but of those I have I would try Millers, east branch Swift, Squannacook and Nissitissit. 

When I still lived in Worc the east branch of the Swift was one of my fav rivers. Spent hundreds of hours fishing there.

Last spring during turkey season I went there and took a walk, checking out all my old haunts. Kind of depressed to see all my old pools and runs were all clogged with logs.  Most were unfishable.

It's been almost two months since I wet a line. During my last outing in early January at a trout pond near me I ended up catching a 4lb larry rather than a 'bow or brown.

The 10 day forecast sucks. Looks like it'll another two weeks at the minimum before I wet a line again. The trout ponds near me are still iced over.

 

I probably have a better shot at holdover stripers before I'll be able to catch another trout. :)

Only one way to find out, man. BTW, there’s a reason the worm is the world’s most universally recognized bait for fish.

Yes. Powerbait is more effective than worms

Powerbait is definitely more productive until the state stocks Browns and brookies anyway. I find the early rainbows really love the dough until about a month into it when worms floated off the bottom are a good option as well. If you want to actively cast a Thomas buoyant fished slow is a good choice
