I've found trout and salmon. Check the Mass Wildlife site. Under the pond maps, you'll find what each pond/lake is stocked with. They're there, you just have to find them.
Mission accomplished! Pike has been checked off the bucket list!!! 1/20/11 5 pike in 2 hours.

There's plenty of trout and Salmon in Western MA and in the Berkshires.  Check mawildlife.  However, most people prefer to fish for bass and pike.  More action and better fight.  But trout through the ice are excellent to eat.  Small tackle and a lot of patients will prevail.

There's plenty of good trout fishing in Ma. State does a good job of putting plenty of trout into plenty of waters. There's quite a few good ponds that hold over stocked trout. Good enough numbers that there's no need to follow the stocking truck. Trout can be taken through the ice consistently if you know how and where.
Do a search on Google or go tp Ma fish & wildlife web site.

The cape have one of the better trout fishery. The deep kettle ponds can hold over trout from year to year. I have caught some big ones out of there.

Try out Onota or berry Pond if Trout is what your after. A friend of mine took a 5lb 1 ounce RB Trout out of Onota this fall. :)
