About Pine Tree Brook, MA

From the Hillside Pond near the Chickatawbut Road intersection to the Milton Blue Hills in Hillside Street, Pine Tree Brook results from the pond overflowing and running over a small dam outlet through a stone conduit. It makes its way down Unquity Road before ending at the Unquity Dam on Harland Street before slowly trickling into Pope’s Pond. Pine Tree Book is heavily monitored due to it being a victim of heavy rains. In 1955, the heavy rains caused the brook to overflow, and people had to use lifeboats to navigate it.

But its being susceptible to overflowing isn’t the only reason they monitor it. Pine Tree Brook became a conservation site for a rare type of brook trout. Because the brooks and streams drained Hillside Pond, Pine Tree Brook, over the years, fashioned itself into a breeding ground for the brook trout by constantly having the water move, leading to water temperatures dropping, making it easier for the brook trout to breed.

Pine Tree Brook Fishing Description

All About Fishing in Pine Tree Brook, MA

In Pine Tree Brook, common encounters will include largemouth bass, brown trout, and an exclusive brown trout only native Pine Tree Brook. These fish have one thing in common: their preference for lower temperatures caused by the opening of mill ponds. These mill ponds formed because of the construction of smaller dams created to control the flow of Pine Tree Brook to prevent flooding but stunted the growth of fish and limited their habitat. Once the officials had the dam removed, temperatures cooled, and more habitat became available for the fish once again.

Pine Tree Brook is a place natives would recommend people to practice light tackle fishing or even fly fishing. For fishing spots, locals would recommend either Jamaica Pond or Cement Pond to catch good brown trout. Pope’s Pond is also another good place to go since it’s nearby Unquity Road. Anglers sometimes go fishing on the roadside, pulling up some rainbow trout if they’re in season.

However, note that because Pine Tree Brook is considered a conservation site, you might not get much. Also, if you’re looking for big game fish, Pine Tree Brook is not the place for you. Because of the shallowness of the water, the trout or the largemouth bass are often smaller than usual.

Pine Tree Brook Seasonal & Other Description

Fishing Seasonality

Pine Tree Brook is an all-year-round place to fish but what matters is what time you go out. If the sun is up too high, you will not get much. The fish there prefer colder temperatures, so it’s either you go night fishing from 1:14 AM to 3:14 AM. However, some anglers say it’s also possible to catch them from 1:28 PM to 3:28 PM. But the chances of you catching those fish highly depend on the weather and the wind pressure. If the wind’s blowing too hard, you will not get much. If you can’t go fishing during those times, some say 7 AM is an excellent time to start casting your line into Pine Tree Brook.

However, note that Pine Tree Brook is often known to overflow when the rainy season comes in. If you see it’s about to rain, you might want to move far away to prevent yourself from getting flooded in. Once the rain stops, wait a few days after the flood so that fish have time to stock and adjust.
