On my way back from Maine on Friday I did some scouting and found a spot on the Merrimack River. I didn't catch anything but the location looks promising.
|The river is heading to the Atlantic Ocean.|
|To the right is an island & some fallen trees with nice current.|
After I went to the office and finished up my week, I headed home and stopped by this body of water that is on the way home. I have tried my luck here in the past without any success and nothing changed this time; however, it is stocked and over the next month or so I hope to change my catch ratio. Below is a view of Silver Lake.

On Saturday, I went to Horn Pond because I was told it was stocked with some rainbows and broodstock. It rained off and on but I went anyway and again got "skunked". It was worth it because some of the signs that fall is upon us presented themselves.
|This was one of several badelynges that I saw.|

I am taking a map and compass class that the state of MA offers this weekend to improve my outdoor skills. I hope to get out fishing on Columbus Day.
