I kinda thought most of the planet had all fishing seasons open by at least April fools day... but I guess not. GREAT info about Mossy creek and other local spots in PA though. I may look into heading thre later anyway. Sadly I have 2 trips planned before may. Another friend want to go to his cabin in WV and fish Williams and Cranberry in February. (also another option for taking my best friend I guess but I wanted to go somewhere I have never been as well).
Thanks for all that info and keep it coming if you have anything to add. Very Serious Thank you to you guys.
Sounds like you have a good plan and glad the members could provide some solid advice. The April 1 opener isn't universal, for example in Yellowstone NP the fishing opens the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. In Wyoming you have to pay close attention to the regulations the openings/closings are all over the map mainly (I think) to protect spawning fish, I'm guessing other states have similiar rules.
