Putting 2 and 2 together: fish in beverages

I was surprised this morning to read Sherlock Holmes quoting Thoreau to Dr. Watson in "The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor":

Some circumstantial evidence is very strong, as when you find a trout in the milk.

This immediately made me think of Twin Peaks:

There was a fish in the percolator.

I can't recall, but I'm pretty sure the fish in the percolator was just a...red herring.
