As the weather warms more and more anglers start thinking about stalking streams and rivers for trout. Here in the Northeast, we are blessed with numerous world class trout waters. One of the best of these waters is the Delaware River. The River’s East and West Branch produce some of the best trout fishing in the world. Fifield Outfitters can take you out for an amazing day of trout fishing on the Delaware. They also fish throughout New York for lots of different species even including night fishing trips for long nose gar. We spent some time getting to know everything Fifield Outfitters offers anglers.

Located in the southwestern handle of Virginia is a 4,500 acre lake by the name of Claytor Lake. This lake is home to some excellent largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass fishing. But this isn’t the type of lake that you can go and fish and expect them to jump in the boat. It has a reputation of being challenging especially in the summer when recreational water sports are in full force. So when I had the opportunity to interview Ryan Spicer, a young man who has had success on the lake, I knew his insight would be helpful to anyone considering fishing Claytor.
Last year, we interviewed Zack Orth about fishing South Central Pennsylvania’s Blue Marsh Lake. Blue Marsh is located in Berks County, Pennsylvania. The Lake is slightly over 1,100 acres that is enjoyed throughout the year by water sports enthusiasts. Of course, here at DockTalk365, we are interested in only the fishing. So, I found another angler who loves fishing Blue Marsh and has unlocked some of its secrets for bass and muskie. Garrett Gincley is that fisherman. Garrett took time to fill us on how he approaches the lake with the added feature of being a kayak angler.
Here at DockTalk365, we focus on the Northeast but we also take the time to discuss some great bucket list fishing destinations. Out of all of the places and fish I expected to interview people about, I didn’t think it would be British Columbia smallmouth bass fishing. That was until I stumbled upon Matt Benson who catches big bass, both smalmouth and largemouth, in British Columbia. In this interview, Matt lets us know why BC should be considered a bass fishing destination.
I interviewed Dean Wormell, author of the Gin Clear blog. He mentioned during the interview that his son Matt is a guide in the Adirondacks. I figured that the apple wouldn’t fall from the tree and that Matt would be a great interview just like his dad. Indeed, I was correct. Matt took some time to fill us in on his background and his fishing in the Adirondacks. As the title of the interview says, Matt gives us his 5 top things about fishing this region. If you have ever been to the Adirondacks, I am sure you will agree with why he loves fishing there. If you haven’t, his list is definitely going to make you want to go. So keep reading for that list of 5 as well as a lot more about Adirondacks fishing.
The Susquehanna River is my home body of water. I have fished the Susquehanna since I was 10, which means nearly 35 years of fishing the river. Every time I think I have the Suskie figured out, I meet an angler that helps me think of fishing the River in an all new way. Ryan Myers is one of these anglers that knows the Susquehanna inside and out and has a lot of cool ideas for catch the smallmouth that call it home. For example, I have never fished a blade bait on the river. Ryan does and has convinced me to pick up a few blade baits this off-season. So if you are an experienced River Rat on the Susquehanna or want to fish this smallmouth bass factory for the first time, Ryan’s interview provides a ton of great information.
Here at DockTalk365.com we have covered a lot of fishing on the Connecticut River. Bass, northern pike, and crappie have all been discussed. We have yet to cover the carp fishing available on the River. That is until we found Connecticut angler Rafal Cisowski. Rafal was willing to give us a look into some of his carp fishing strategies. His favorite water to use these techniques is the Connecticut River and his Instagram proves that the River holds lots and lots of big carp.
