  • trout opener is approaching in w.pa, a group of go up to my family's hunting camp on tionesta creek, for alot of us its the firs

    trout opener is approaching in w.pa, a group of go up to my family's hunting camp on tionesta creek, for alot of us its the first chance of the year to put lines in the water, and cook hotdogs by the fire. the weekend is complete with fishing and drinking competitions/trophies, anyone else have a similar experience/ritual?

    No real tradition/ritual other than I have never missed 1st since I was a small child and never intend on missing a first day.

      My buddy and I used to fish PA the first weekend of every month, regardlesss of weather. This did not last long since he developed cancer and pass away. I have not fished PA since and he passed in 1998.

      I have a 5 day trip planned for Central PA the end of April. I'm sure it will be good to be back.

        I used to love opening day when I was a little kid. It had that almost carnival atmosphere, since we just fished stocked waters near town. We didn't have a ritual, per se, other than going out and staking out our little piece of the shore from which to fish.

        Now I live where the season's open year round. I like it in a lot of ways, but a little piece of me misses the excitement of the first day.

          At our camp we have a Cast&Blast weeekend either late April or early May. Trout and Turkeys. We do have a biggest fish and longest beard contest. Any drinking however is purely recreational. buckhunter, Where in Pa. you going?

            Steve,

            I have no clue where we are going. My buddy in Pittsburgh said it's about a 5 hour drive from Pittsburgh.
