Improving Connecticut's Housatonic River

In The New York Times, C. J. Hughes describes how recent rules that prevent massive discharges by the Housatonic’s hydropower plants have led to dramatic recoveries in the health of trout populations on this large Connecticut river. “‘The Housatonic, in fact, is comparable to the best rivers of the West in terms of its width, speed and rugged beauty,’ said Kirt Mayland, a regional official of Trout Unlimited, a conservation group, who has fished throughout the country.” At the end of the article there’s good info on where to go and who to talk to if you want to fish the Housatonic.
