Opening Day Of Fishing Season

Anglers like Dale Donaghy (front) and Tim Donaghy were casting in the Barton River on Saturday, opening day of fishing season. The weather was pleasant and the water warm, perfect for fish to travel upstream to spawn.

On a first cast Tim Donaghy hooked a 22 inch Brown trout. They fish the larger rivers in Orleans County as well as the Connecticut River. (Photo by Ed Barber)
