The energy in the air is palpable. People aren’t wearing masks. Restaurants are full on Tuesday nights. Spring is in the air. Despite the horrors of war in the Ukraine and the challenges facing our battered economy here in Western Mass, it feels like we could be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Let’s hope this is a magical spring that we ALL deserve.
For us, spring means getting back on the river. Following the runoff, the waters clear, begin to warm and we can paddle on the Great River. Sometime in May we start seeing the migrating fish.
