Dogs, Horses and Fish - Oh My!

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:
