when do you guys start getting herring in the rivers up there though? Was visiting my bro at college a couple years back and people were fishing them under bobbers around the bridges

The days of herring fishing are over. Most states in New England have banned the possession of river herring. Herring show in the rivers in early April. But the big fish are under the Macs a little offshore from about May 15 to June 15. Then the whole show just goes to the dogs...
