WGMD Fishing Report 3-16-18


Thursday was another cold and windy day and I don’t think many if any fish were caught.  The weekend should be a little bit better and fishing should be possible in the upper reaches of the tidal rivers and creeks as well as the ponds.  This includes the two trout ponds; Tidbury in Dover and Newton near Greenwood.

On Wednesday I received some sad news.  My friend Lefty Kreh passed away at 93 years of age.  I knew his health was failing so his death was not a surprise, but nevertheless I still felt a hole in my heart.

There are a lot of folks, like myself, that make a living writing and talking about fishing.  Lefty Kreh did that job better than all the rest of us.  When he spoke, the best thing to do was listen.

I first met Lefty in the 1980s and after finding out I never fished with a fly rod he was kind enough to invite me to his home and take out to a small pond and show me how to cast.  I never forgot his kindness and I still have the rod and reel he gave me.
