Re: Native brook trout in Massachusetts?
I remember this subject coming up on another board (reel-time) a few years ago and the answer is yes.
You're going to have to scout out the brooks yourself though. That's a secret that not many know about and the people that do aren't about to tell.
In your search, remember that brookies need very clean, cold water.
Brooks shaded with hemlocks are a good place to start.
Here's a couple of websites to help you on your way
