Fresh Smelts--have they dissappeared from New England?

qianning | Mar 7, 2009 09:10 AM

I'm very fond of pan fried smelts. But these days I never see local smelts on menus or in the grocery stores or fish markets (except frozen from Canada). Shouldn't they be in season? Where have they gone? I'm in Southern New Hampshire, but travel frequently to Boston. and with less frequncy as far south as Providence as far east as Portland. Anybody know where fresh local smelts are available these days?
