I can remember snorkeling below the shelburne falls dam and seeing very large troutish looking fish holding along the rocks.

 

That was almost 40 years ago.

The wifey and I go swimming around there several times a week throughout the summer but for some reason only tried snorkeling it at the end of this year.... it was absolutely amazing!  

 I couldn’t believe how curious the fish were and how close they came. 
Only one big rainbow but several drool worthy smallmouth... I always catch dinks as bycatch but never knew they were worth targeting.  
Prob one of my most memorable experiences this summer.

 

Sorry, off topic but had to share. 
 

Snorkeling in fresh water is entirely underrated.

Indeed. And smallmouth are particularly curious and will follow swimmers in hopes of crayfish kicked up from the bottom. They hang out in swimming areas in summer.

 

They also follow big turtles and big eels as they root in the bottom.

Really interesting post.

When I was a kid, my parents would drop me off at the Swift in Belchertown in July and August. I spend most of the day alone, running up and down the river fly fishing. I was a rank novice.  I knew trout we're there, but I couldn't see or catch them. However, as soon as they released water and the river level began to rise, magic happened. Fish began rising everywhere. Often at my feet. They we're there all along. Impossible to see. Some of the rises were big.  Those were great days.
