Closing Night

October 23, 2006 By: Marshall Cutchin

John Corrigan closes the New England trout season by kayak fishing Profile Lake and testing his grandfather’s advice to always attend a play on closing night. “I suspected it was too cold for insect hatches, and the surface was so choppy that rises would not be visible. Because the kayak’s cockpit is roughly in the middle between bow and stern, it’s impossible to get in the boat without stepping into the water. I use water shoes similar to running footwear, but at that point I wished I was wearing the warmer neoprene booties I use when scuba diving.” In the Concord, New Hampshire Monitor.
