Alberto,

You should tell Rich T. that the Adkins diet makes you more prone to sickness. Believe me I've tried...got myself run down, not to mention my cholesterol went up and also got a kidney stone (ouch!).

Is he still shrinking away?

Hi Al. I start fishing the Conni as soon as I put the boat to bed. PROBABLY this week. Wooly buggers work well but I like the bead heads, I also do well with zonkers. I used to use a 4 wt.outfit but I won't use anything lighter than a 6 during the winter now, The lighter rig would take too much of a toll on the large fish we get this time of year. I'd rather be able to land them quickly and release them healthy. I keep the light stuff for the spring and summer.

Hello Al,
I love fishing the conny in the winter/spring.
There are some MONSTER trout lurking in there!
As far as favorite patterns,the olive or black bugger has always been good,and a dark hares ear/pheasant tail nymph on the selective days.
Lately i've been experimenting with some wild colors & patterns to put to the test for this season to harass some of the local sea runs who like to stop by!

I like to use a 6wt. set up on the lower beats and the pond,and a 4# is a lotta fun on the upper beats with heavier cover.

Al,

Trout season is open all year in the Connetquot River, South of Montauk Highway (Tidal river). A great way to take advantage of some sea runs and keep busy through the winter.

You can use spinning gear South of Montauk Highway. They are not allowed in the park. Ultra light tackle with Mepps zero's, tiny rapala countdowns, quickfish and other small lures all work great. Plus you will always find some guys down there with powerbait (unfortunately they also kill a lot of the small trout to retreive their hooks).

Also, while I have never caught any, some guys do very well with white perch there.

Hello Doughboy,
I was referring to the Connetquot State Park, which is for fly fisherman only and opens the first of February.

Also, the tidal rivers you are reffering to is called Rattlesnake creek and Bubbles fall which you are right ? it?s open all year long and it does not require a freshwater fishing license. Usually when I get the itch? you will find me fishing there! ;)

Hi Al,

I understood that you were talking about the park. I was trying to let you know that you didn't have to wait until February to get in some trout action. Rattlesnake creek feeds into the the Connetquot river just South of the train tressel and Bubbles Falls is a fall that is on the Connetquot River. The year round regulations only apply to the tidal portion of the stream. So when fishing at Bubbles Falls you can fish down stream of the spillway with no problem, but do not cast your line upstream of the spillway because the season is closed there. In fresh water you cannot fish for fish during the closed season.

Doughboy,
That is true and thank you for the clarification! :)

Now... Do we have anybody working the Nassau waters chasing trout this time of the year?

I am referring to Massapequa Reservoir, Twin Lakes, McDonald Pond or South pond. Anybody?
