Here’s a pretty good article on the subject matter.
In terms of place, I know that I will be in Hunter’s Brook this come late April after the coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara) bloom. Coltsfoot look a lot like dandelions, so don’t be fooled.
Hunter’s Brook is one of my favorite walks on the island, even though it’s only .3 miles long. It’s a good distance for kids and there’s not a whole lot of grade to tire them out. I just went down there on this rainy Saturday. The rain and the high tide
brought salt and fresh water
Brookies are by far my favorite fish to fish. The sea-run brookies are about 10-12 inches and take on a weird iridescence that only slightly obscures their beautiful mottled patterns. And, according to this article above, these guys will fight like hell (and like a salmon) when caught.
