  • Slow, But Enjoyable (And Early) Start To Fishing Season

    Fishermen line the area ponds, lakes, rivers, and streams – and bring their boats out – to cast their lines every year on the morning when fishing season begins. This April, in Newtown anyway, there seemed to be fewer fishermen out for opening day than in the past – perhaps, in part, because of an earlier start to the season and due to a windy day and overall slow arrival of spring warmth. Nonetheless, the Saturday, April 11 morning was an enjoyable kickoff (make that cast off) to the season for those who hooked bait and reeled in dinner.

  • The Top Of The Mountain

    Somewhere out there, a critter is rubbing his rump and thinking, “Ouch! All this for a minnow?” Bee employee Emery Klein was out fishing last week, when his line started spinning out. This gave Emery a bit of a thrill, as he was expecting to reel in the big one. But the “one that got away” turned out to not be a trout or bass or any other fish one might find in Connecticut waters, but a beaver that had been tempted by the minnow at the end of the line.
