Solid lakes and snow bank-laden ditches make it hard to believe that the first fishing opener of spring is merely a week away.

I'm neither referring to the 2011 walleye opener nor the bullhead opener (there isn't one, anglers can keep the bottom dwelling rough-fish all year.) Next Saturday is the official stream trout opener.
