Maine Audubon’s Brook Trout Pond Survey Coordinator, Amanda Moeser joined Jeff Reardon of Trout Unlimited in Rangeley this past weekend for the annual Fly Fishing in Maine Conclave. They are recruiting anglers to survey ponds in the Rangeley area for brook trout, part of a larger effort to identify previously-undocumented wild brook trout populations across the state.

The first angler to survey one of the elusive, remote ponds near Rangeley won a homemade Upside-Down Rhubarb cake (hand-picked rhubarb from Gilsland Farm, combined with lots of butter and sugar, and baked in a cast iron skillet)—YUM!

Maine Audubon is still seeking volunteer anglers to help with the Brook Trout Pond Survey in other parts of the state.  For more information about the project, contact Amanda @ 207-781-6180 x207 or [email protected] or visit the project website: Maine Council of Trout Unlimited
