Goose Pond, Tyringham
There are numerous streams in Adams, Cheshire, and Savoy that support trout, but you'll need the goodwill of a local fisherman to find them!
None of these place are in Sheffield, but Stockbridge, Great Barrington, Monterey, New Marlborough, Otis and Tyringham are all relatively close by.
I hope this helps.
