    Question Ireland Brook

    Has anyone out there ever fished Ireland Brook? It looks like just a little trickle of water that flows into Farrington Lake. I took a walk over there the other day to check it out - there are "Trout Stocked Water" signs posted - but I couldn't find anything on the Fish & Game website that indicates when or how many trout go into it. I didn't walk in too far from Riva Avenue (only had a few minutes - and my kids with me) and don't know if there is any other way to access it - or a spot where perhaps it gets a little wider or hopefully deeper.

    Thanks -

    Terry

    Ah yes, Ireland brook, one of my boyhood haunts. It flows out of the Dalllenbach ponds at the end Church lane. The only way to access it is to walk up from Riva Ave. There are some small pools as you head upstream. I'm pretty sure the state does not stock upstream too far. However, any trout that make it through the first few weeks will spread out and head up. Trout at the bottom are doomed to Farrington Northerns that like to shoot up around the bridge and pick them off. A put and take fishery at it's worst. Suckers, and assorted panfish as well.

    I also noticed it was no longer on the states list. Did the "Trout Stocked Waters" sign look new?

    Talking Ireland Brook

    Made it out for an hour there last night around 6:30 p.m.. Wound up picking up a Sunnie, a 12 inch Brookie and an 18 inch Largemouth right under the bridge . Walked upstream a bit - but no luck.

    I used to fish it when I was a kid, gets fished out real quick. If you are looking for a little trout fishing in the area you might want to try below Davidsons Mill falls or Farrington Falls.

    ireland brook

    Don't waste too much time on this place. I spoke to the WCO prior to the opener and he said they put about 100 in. I was very skeptical as i didn't spot a one in the water. Better off trying below the dam or in Lawrence Brook just north on Riva at the Milltown border. Just keep in mind that these Small pieces of water only get stocked 3 times throughout the season.
