i have this theory that the 1st fish of the season is the hardest to catch. in 23 seasons of fishing where i do. the latest in a season to get the 1st one has been the 2nd of march, yet i still finished the season with the 23year average. also i always expect to have a 4or 5 week period during a season when i don’t touch a fish. teaches you either patience or shows how addicted you are to salmon fishing. just over 2 months until the first fish is sighted.
