Fun Fact: The Brook Trout species is green to brown in basic color,
with a distinctive marbled pattern of lighter shades across the flanks and back and extending at least to the
dorsal fin, and often to the tail. A distinctive sprinkling of red dots, surrounded by blue haloes, occurs along
the flanks. The belly and lower fins are reddish in color, the latter with white leading edges. Often, the belly,
particularly of the males, becomes very red or orange when the fish are spawning.
The species reaches a maximum
recorded length of 86 cm (33 in) and a maximum recorded weight of 6.6 kg (14.5 lb). It can
reach at least seven years of age, with reports of 15 year old specimens observed in California habitats
to which the species has been introduced. Typical lengths vary from 25 to 65 cm (10 to 26 in), and
weights vary from 0.3 to 3.0 kg (0.7 to 7.0 lb).
