Town Talk

Talk set on history of trout fishing

On Saturday May 18, noted wildlife expert Mark Brown and others will give a presentation entitled “Adirondack Brook Trout Fishing, Past and Present” at the Warrensburgh Museum of Local History on Main St. The event, free of charge, begins at 2 p.m.

Trout fishing has a long history in the Adirondacks. Brown, a retired state Environmental Conservation wildlife biologist and avid fisherman, has traveled around North America in pursuit of trout, especially Brook Trout.

Brown will likely be explaining trout fishing equipment and tackle used in the early 1900s Brown will surely give valuable insights into trout fishing in the Adirondacks whether it’s spin or fly fishing.
