If you are interested in what kind of projects SRBTC is working on, we’ve put together a photo gallery to demonstrate what kinds of projects we’re involved in.
First off – if you happen to notice illegal or suspicious activity on any salter brook trout streams – (or any fisheries or wildlife activities for that matter) please DO NOT be a VIGILANTE. There’s a reason for EPO’s (Environmental Police Officers) and they will be more than happy to investigate and provide a report back.
To reach them, they have an Emergency 24 hr, 7days Statewide Dispatch at (800) 632-8075 Or 1 (617) 626-1665.
If you see something, say something, and TAKE A PICTURE if at all possible. License plate numbers are really helpful if you can get one. Do not risk speaking to the individual unless it is within the normal course of angler “chat” type conversations.
Violations could be motorbike riding, bait fishing, inappropriate cutting or removal of fish within Catch and Release regulated areas (Red Brook and Quashnet Rivers only).
If this is a matter more closely relating to the land owner, please reach out to SRBTC directly and we’ll reach out to the appropriate individual.
Our number is (508) 538-1857.
