Thriving in Connecticut’s West Branch Farmington River (WFBR) is a strain of brown trout that have become highly sought after by those who fish there. The reoccurring story of the Survivor strain begins every September, when some of state’s finest trout habitat is sampled by the Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) Inland Fisheries Division. Over the course of a few days, fisheries biologists and their staff amass on the Farmington, accessing fish populations and capturing trout to bolster this unique stocking program.
