Outdoors in Whitehall with Gene Terry: Spring huntings and fishing season off and running

From all reports, trout fishing is the best its been in years, mainly because of the low water in the Mettowee River and other trout streams. Some nice ones have been coming out of the Mettowee.

Turkey season opener shows that some women out shot the men all to heck. A couple of 22 pound toms were taken up Dresden way—by women.

Walleye season opened last Saturday and about the only thing that the fishermen had to say about the opening weekend was that the weather was just beautiful. Of course, it would have been much better if the fish would cooperate but you can’t have everything. Lots of boats were out there; now if we could only get the Department of Environmental Conservation to put the docks in at the South Bay launch you wouldn’t have everyone running into each other putting them in and out.

I call DEC three times in the last two weeks and they assured me they would have in docks in by Saturday. No show!

In a previous column, I mentioned that the federation was looking for lumber to construct bluebird houses to give away to senior citizens at the fair. It was quoted that we give away approximately 50 birdhouses on Senior Citizen Day. It should have said we make and give away 500 of them on that day.

Any help that you can give us in donations of wood for this project, give me a call at 499-0623.

The seniors will love you for it. Have a great day.
