The fish whisperer catches two golden trout

SALISBURY — Every year the state slips two golden trout into the water at Factory Pond and the children’s pond at Lake Wononscopomuc, when fisheries representatives from the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection stock the ponds in advance of the beginning of fishing season.

D.J. Duntz was one of the champions of this year’s fishing derby on the first day of fishing, which was April 13. He had snagged a 3 pound trout.

Overwhelming water in the Blackberry

NORTH CANAAN — Brian Kinney of Bristol was at Beckley Furnace in North Canaan, trying to get his white beadhead Wooly Bugger down into the swollen, discolored Blackberry River.

Warm temperatures on a low-key opening day

LAKEVILLE — The weather was warm but rainy on  Saturday, April 13, the first day of general regulation fishing in Connecticut.

Community invited in to enjoy Lime Rock Park

LIME ROCK — Lime Rock Park is making a special effort this year to invite the community in, and perhaps change some minds about car and motorcycle racing on the track. 
The track owners have been in litigation with the town of Salisbury for a couple years now over owner Skip Barber’s request to state regulators that there be some Sunday racing allowed. A court injunction from the 1950s strictly forbids Sunday racing (in part because the track is right across Route 112 from Trinity Episcopal Church).
