The opening day for trout fishing statewide is April 14th. There are many books at the DuBois Public Library that will help you get ready for the big day. These books give tips on casting, fly-tying, proper clothing and equipment such as rods, reels, lines and lures. Also there are books on where the hot spots are, and, after you’ve caught the fish, how to clean and cook them.
Some of the books available are: Better Bass Fishing by Robert Montgomery; The Complete Guide to Freshwater Fishing; Fishing: Tackle, Baits & Lures, Species, Techniques, and Where to Fish by Henry Gilbey; Fly Fisherman’s Primer by Paul Fling; Trout: The Complete Guide to Catching Trout with Flies, Artificial Lures and Live Bait by John Van Vliet. In the Children’s Library there is Buck Wilder’s Small Fry Fishing Guide by Tim Smith; and Fishing by John Bailey.
