I got an email on Halloween inviting me not to a costume party but to behold the strange and rare sight of sockeye salmon trying to spawn in a tiny little brook that runs through Ed and Betty Tyburski’s property on East Twin Lake in Salisbury.

The Tyburskis have owned the house for more than 50 years and they’ve never seen anything like it.

The brook is seasonal. When it rains, it runs.

And it rained buckets a couple days earlier.

When I got there, I saw what was probably 200 bright red fish in the 12-inch range, practically on top of each other...

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.)
