On Thursday April 9, my boyfriend went fishing in Alfred. He tried many spots and ended the day without a single catch. Nor, did he see any fish.

According to Zac, the water was so dirty that you couldn’t even see through it.

“It was too muddy from all the rain and snow melting,” said Zac.

Zac and his friend fished for three hours and tried many spots along the Genesee River. A few of the places were at the bridge across the road from the Wellsville Rod and Gun Club and in Shongo.

Throughout that entire day Zac said he didn’t see anyone fishing.

This same time last year we went fishing at the same spots and didn’t catch anything but a few small trout.

It’s weird how one day you can catch several fish while fishing for hours, and then the next day you don’t even see one fish in the water.

“It’s because fish go through cycles,” said Zac.

Fishing since this past summer hasn’t been as good as the year before that.
