When I was a kid, we fished out every brook within a 10 mile radius of where we lived in the E. Bethel area. Anywhere we could reach on our bicycles was fair game. My mother used to love it when us 4 brothers came home with a bread bag chuck-a-block full of pan fry brook trout 6-8 inches long. Roll them in corn meal - yum yum I don't think kids fish like that anymore. I do believe there are miles of water that can be fished that way today and you'd never see an soul.
