We have a June trip planned for the West Branch of the Delaware. Having fished the Roscoe area rivers I am sure the West Branch of the Delaware will far exceed my expectations. For close to 20 years I have been fishing the Farmington River in Connecticut and it has never let me down. I am sure that come June the West Branch will keep drawing us in. Here's to the Farmington River and some of its beautiful brown trout.

Jim Less and I headed to the back-country in Arcadia to fish for some wild brook trout. We headed to Breakheart Pond to fish the inlet and outflow of the pond. There were a few ice fishers on the pond enjoying a wonderful sunny day. Jim and I spent a short amount of time at the head of the pond with not much access to deeper pools, from there we headed back to the parking area and fish the outflow; Breakheart Brook. What a wonderful stretch with steeper than normal grades for a small Rhode Island Stream. We felt as if we were fishing a White Mountain stream in NH. We just spent a couple of hours on the stream however it was a splendid winter day. I did manage to land a gorgeous little brook trout around 8 inches. I am sure there were many more in the deep pools. A Hares Ear Tungsten Bead did the trick. Jim and I did witness many enthusiast out enjoying the management area. Was truly nice to see.
