Brown Trout Population Study

In an effort to assess the health of the wild brown trout population, TU is collaborating with MA Fisheries and Wildlife to conduct a study of the wild Brown Trout population in the Deerfield River.  Beginning now (Spring of 2018) the adipose fins of all Brown Trout that are stocked in the Deerfield River Catch and Release areas will be removed before stocking.  We need your help in gathering data for this wild trout population study.  Please use the form below to report on any Brown Trout that are caught on the Upper Deerfield.
