Atlantic dest from Conn in late Feb Mar
Might some kind hearted soul suggest where we might plan our first spey trip for steelhead or salmon on around the last week of Feb or last week of March?
Should we be thinking Maine or Labrador as the closest spot to Conn for salmon? If yes, when should we apply for vacation time?
We are daunted/paralyzed being new & having no one to help push us out of the nest, so to speak, onto our first spey adventure. We've taken spey lessons and acquired the gear but are not sure of where/how/when to go now. We are not rich and cannot afford the guides, airplane fare etc so we thought we'd take a train/bus somewhere, rent a car and fish for salmon or steelhead for a week.
Sounds like the Salmon River in Pulaski is the closest but I'm told spey casters are not welcome there bec it is so overcrowded. The fall back plan is to splurge for a guide for a day and wing it the other six days on the Salmon River.
Thank you for help overcoming our inertia.
