With Easter weekend upon us and the recent warmer weather, many folks are getting the itch to try their luck at some of their favorite fishing spots around the state.  But with a mixed bag of rain and snow as well as wind, will shake up fishing conditions statewide this week.

For those brave enough to test the elements good fishing can be found, but where to go is the real question?  Should you head to the lake or hit the river?  What should you use to get the fish to bite?  Each month, we will try and get you the best answers to those questions and more.  Let's take a look and see what the early season has in store for us right now...
