Given all of the cutbacks and budget constraints in recent years I think the DEC is doing a good job managing our fisheries and brook trout in the Adirondacks.

Experience has been that few remote waters have many or any trout. Either too acidic or too heavily scoured by otter, mink, birds etc. Some of the remote locations I have hiked in to are listed as native trout waters, but I haven't seen a thing in most of them.

There is a good article titled "Troubled Waters" in the Summer'16 issue of "Northern Woodlands" rag. It concerns the introduction of Bass into a state of Maine's premier Brookie fishery. FYI

Curious if anyone participated in the Troutpower event held in Sagamore back in June? Any news worth sharing?

I'm not looking for the name or locations of these ponds, if they even exist, i'm just curious if any do remain.

Although if you know of some remaining "native" brook trout ponds feel free to pm their location and i'll do my best to do a video report.

I hiked into a pond two summers ago that is stocked with trout , but not brookies ( I try to leave the specs alone in summer), regardless I was pleasantly surprised at the number of tiny brook trout I caught. I contacted a DEC pal who contacted a DEC biologist who said they were not stocked there and must have come from the local streams and that they were unaware of the presence of brookies were in that pond. Inch by inch they're coming back.
success only comes before work in the dictionary.
