Maine's Elver fishing season starts today – technically. But the valuable baby eels don't like the cold, so fishermen today are limited to staking out their spots on Maine's rivers and streams.
Darrell Young is the founder and co-director of the Maine Elver Fisherman's Association. He's staked out his spot in Ellsworth on the Union River, but he says right now, it's snowing sideways.
“The weather dictates everything, and right now we've got two feet of snow, and it's snowing now, we'll get six inches of snow today,” Young says.
