Cold Stream Forest is a rich habitat for wild brook trout
The state land, protected earlier this year, is a fisherman's playground.

...The two conservationists were making their first fishing trip together to the area since they helped to protect 8,159 acres in Cold Stream Forest, near The Forks in Somerset County in northwestern Maine. The 15 miles of Cold Stream and its nearby ponds are home to wild native brook trout, making up a fishery found in few other parts of Maine – and nowhere else in the country.

“There’s access now for generations and there is the (promise) of a healthy fishery,” Tone said. “It’s the forest around these waters that protects them. From an ecological standpoint, it helps with climate change. It’s also a recreational corridor and it’s still a working forestland.”

While there were many reasons to protect 8,159 acres here – including an important deer yard – the wild trout fishery is unique.
