Twenty cars assembled on the grassy roadside across from the church. They ranged in age from a 1912 Stanley Steamer to a 1969 Porsche.

A standout was Sam Posey’s 1955 Mercedes Benz 300sl Gullwing brought by his son, John.

Too cold even for the worms on first day of fishing

Sarah Upton’s 3-pound, 3-ounce, 21-inch brown trout was the top fish in the children’s fishing derby at the Salisbury town Grove on Saturday, April 8, the first day of fishing in Connecticut.
D.J. Duntz (in the 11-12-year-old category) caught a 2-pound, 2-ounce, 17-1/2-inch golden trout.
It was a subdued opening day of trout season, with snow and sleet the night before, occasional drizzle throughout the morning, and a nice stiff breeze that originated somewhere near the Arctic Circle and picked up steam in Chicago.

Tough times for trout, but so far they survive

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.)
