Home Fishing The Enchanted Mountains offers anglers plenty of fishing opportunities. The start of trout season begins with excitement each year in the spring (April 1st). Or wait for the warm days of summer to cast your line in a quiet, peaceful stream and watch the clouds float along. For the hardier sportsperson, try ice fishing on our lakes during one of those sunny, brilliant wintry days. Main Photo is fishermen enjoying the Cattaragus Creek. Taken by Rick Miller.
