By Dick Nelson

Trout fishermen shun trout opener, but thousands attend rally
By Dick Nelson

The only thing the opener had going for it was the weather, inasmuch as the sun was shining and there was relatively little wind.
Trout fishers were well aware of conditions before they left home, and those that looked at the thermometer had the good sense to wait until mid-a ...
