Fall 2005 New England Trout Forecast
Al Raychard gives a great synopsis of trout fishing opportunities in the northeast U.S. this fall and notes how improved water quality and resource management has made a real difference, especially in Maine and Connecticut. “One of the more exciting study programs to get underway in recent years is the reintroduction of rainbow trout to Maine waters. Rainbows were first introduced here in the 1930s, then again in the 1960s, but those attempts weren’t successful. In 2001, about a dozen waters in the southern part of the state were stocked with 10,000 rainbows as part of a five- to six-year study to determine how they will fare compared to brook and brown trout in Maine waters.” In New England Game & Fish magazine.
