A beautiful but cool weekend greeted all who attended the 73rd annual Opening Weekend at Meadowbrook on the Pine.  The river was a little high but good fishing awaited those prepared to brave the cold mornings.  Brent Mowinski won the trophy with a 22 1/2 inch brown.  It was the biggest trout he has ever landed and the second biggest to win the Opening Weekend Trophy. This was the second consecutive year when the weekend had to be moved a week later than the traditional Opener of the last Saturday in April.  It was the consensus that this date change should become permanent.  So until further notice Opening Weekend at Meadowbrook on the Pine will be celebrated on the first Saturday in May.
