Between the end of February and the second Saturday in April (April 8, this year) anglers crazy enough to head out for some trout fishing are restricted to the state’s Trout Management Areas (such as the designated sections of the West Branch of the Farmington River and of the Housatonic River) or Class I Wild Trout Management Areas, such as Wachocastinook Brook (aka Riga Brook) in Salisbury.

(You might also try certain anonymous streams, not listed by the state, that may or may not have trout, depending on whether they actually do, in fact, exist. Literally.)

Fishing in winter is not as crazy as it sounds

On Saturday, Jan. 28, I was feeling more than a little stir-crazy. So I went fishing.
This isn’t as crazy as it sounds.
First of all, there was not a lot of snow at the time. Second, the temperatures had been well above freezing, so ice would probably not be an issue.
Third, I had a new little fiberglass rod in my mitts that required a tryout.

Record attendance at 91st Jumpfest

No records were broken by the ski jumpers this year but the crowd attending the Jumpfest competition on Saturday, Feb. 11, was the largest ever. Salisbury Winter Sports Association (SWSA) Director Willie Hallihan said that between 1,100 and 1,200 tickets were sold.
“And that doesn’t include the number of kids who came, which was probably another 500,” he added. 
And then of course there were the dogs; it seemed as though there was one dog for every dozen people.

One giant leap for ski-kind...

Safe to say that this year’s Salisbury Winter Sports Association Jumpfest was like none other. The Friday target jumping contest went into overtime for the first time; the weather was perfect on Saturday, attracting a record-breaking crowd; and there was a massive snowstorm Sunday, but the jumping went on in spite of it.
