Fishing season is here, don’t get caught unprepared

Between the end of February and the second Saturday in April (April 8, this year) anglers crazy enough to head out for some trout fishing are restricted to the state’s Trout Management Areas (such as the designated sections of the West Branch of the Farmington River and of the Housatonic River) or Class I Wild Trout Management Areas, such as Wachocastinook Brook (aka Riga Brook) in Salisbury.
(You might also try certain anonymous streams, not listed by the state, that may or may not have trout, depending on whether they actually do, in fact, exist. Literally.)
