 Fishing the opener
I have never fished opening day in PA. I always targeted the third week in April as my first outing.

 "First Day of Trout"
I can fish for wild trout 365 days a year on many great waters. I'm not sure why I would want to fight a circus like crowd 1 day a year for stocked fish. For you guys that are going, have fun and be safe

 "First Day"
I fish for trout 12 months of the year, so there is not really any opening day for me. I will almost certainly be fishing somewhere on both those days, although I'll be staying away from the ATW crowds.

 Re: "First Day"
Pretty much the same as the last two guys. I'll be out but most likely at a DHALO. I also fish all year long so no opening day for me either. Besides that atmosphere is just not my cup of tea.

 Opening Day Poll
I usually fish on opening day, but on unstocked wild trout streams. BTW, there is a SE opening day. But there isn't a NE opening day. That is more accurately called the Rest of the State Opening Day.

 Right in the middle of it
I will be there with the hordes. Sort of a challenge and an excercise to see how low someone will go to snatch a fish from underneath of you. The exploits of the 'bucketeers" are always amusing and nothing like seeing the disgruntle look of the stringer crowd as I catch and release 20 fish after they have abandoned the same hole five minutes earlier :) Last year the political commentary was hysterical!
