March President's Message
Close to 500,000 brook, brown, rainbow and tiger trout will be stocked this spring from MassWildlife’s five hatcheries located in Sandwich, Palmer, Belchertown, Sunderland, and Montague. It has been a challenging year for the hatcheries this year given the extremely cold, icy, and snowy conditions that have prevailed this winter. Nevertheless, the close to 500,000 fish being stocked this spring, coupled with the more than 67,000 12+ inch trout stocked last fall should provide some excellent fishing in the coming months. Due to the heavy snow and thick ice that remains on lakes and ponds across the state, trout stocking likely will not begin until the last week of March or the first week in April, beginning with the eastern region of the state moving westward as the ice and snow melts.
Anglers are encouraged to check the trout stocking schedule for the district near you, or contact individual district officesfor the latest stocking information. Trout stocking schedules will be updated every Friday between the end of March and Memorial Day in May.

CROSSROADS ANGLERS is a flyfishing club that meets every fourth
Tuesday from September to May at 6:30 PM at the South Foxboro Community
Center for fly tying and good conversation about fishing.
At our meetings, people sit in groups tying useful flies--others are welcome to join them or just watch and learn. There
is normally a beginners' table. And one of us, or a guest tyer, demonstrates
tying a fly for those who are interested.
Several times a year we have a guest presenter. We've had
Lefty Kreh, Bob Clouser, Bob
Popovics, Paul Jacobs, Dave Porreca, Ed Lombardo, Paul Pezza, Dr. David Ross and Ray
In good weather we have a casting
clinic before the meeting. And we sponsor fresh and salt water fishing
trips in the spring and fall.
New tyers are always welcome. Join in the fun!
