Illegally Stocked Bass Threaten Local Brook Trout 

A prime central Maine brook trout pond is being threatened by illegaly stocked bass.That’s according to inland fisheries and wildlife biologists who say smallmouth bass are in Kimball Pond in Vienna.Fisheries Director Mike Brown says says the pond has a first-class brook trout fishery, but the bass will compete with trout for food and will eat small trout.Officials say it may be impossible to get all the bass out of the pond, but fishermen can do their part by removing any bass they catch.
