I work near Truro, and was talkin to a fella who just started at my work place. He is from brookfeild near stewiake and we got talkin fishing. Hes lived there his who life and apparently there is a Farmer with a fish pond near Birch hill area who made and stocked his pond 35 years ago with Pickeral from Maine. The pond which is about a half acre is 200 yards from the Stewiake and right on a flood plain. I always wondered if they escaped from Shortts or Grand, but the pickeral in Grand really only started showing up about 10 years ago. Do you think its possible over 25 years that the pickeral made it to grand from Birch hill? Im not sure if the pickeral would try to navigate the tidal water or if it is a differnt population?
