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.
