Conservation project to protect prime brook trout habitat in northwestern Maine
The 8,159-acre Cold Stream Forest parcel has been transferred to the state.

... David Trahan, executive director for Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine, called the announcement a “landmark day for conservation land.”

A report by Trout Unlimited in 2006 showed that Maine is the last stronghold in the Northeast for wild brook trout. The state has 97 percent of the intact lake and pond brook trout populations in the eastern United States, which means those waters are not stocked with hatchery fish.

“Maine is the only state in the Northeast where brook trout habitat is not fragmented. Cold Stream is (an example of why),” said Jeff Reardon, Trout Unlimited’s brook trout project leader in Maine.
