There is more than one small lake in the area you mention that has been experimentally limed in not too many years past. The DEC dropped bags of lime on the ice in winter so it dissolved during the spring melt, when acidification was the worst. I have seen the lime residue in the shallows of some, and those lakes do have a decent thriving trout population now. I've hiked into them and caught a few brookies.
