Dogs, Horses and Fish - Oh My! Last weekend, the weather was unseasonably warm. Riley, the Real Estate Dog, and Richelle went for a walk here in Newtown. One of their favorite places to go is over behind the Governor's Horse Guard which is part of the old Fairfield Hills complex. There is a poorly paved road that goes down the hill past where the new Newtown Dog Pound is being built. It leads to 2 large fields - one has a path around its perimeter with side bordered by Deep Brook which is a Class 1 Wild Trout Stream. It's a very scenic walk and to be out walking there last weekend was a real treat.
Richelle took a few photos:
So, what is a Class 1 Wild Trout Stream anyway? Class 1 means that there is abundant wild trout and that it's not stocked. There are a few restrictions at Deep Brook - it's a catch & release only and Barbless single-hook artificial lures and flies only are the only methods allowed.
Here are a few more photos:
