Brook Trout – America’s Freshwater Fish
Did you know that the Brook Trout is the state fish of more states than any other sea-dweller in the United States? It’s true. The Brook Trout is the official state fish (and in some cases, the official freshwater fish or official cold water fish) of eight different states. These states include Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia.
This very popular fish is also known in some parts as the Eastern Brook Trout, Speckled Trout and Squaretail. Despite its official name, the Brook Trout is not actually a trout at all, but rather a char, a member of the salmon family. They tend to populate the eastern portion of North America and are most frequently found in the rivers, brooks, ponds and streams of the Appalachian Mountains region, though they can also be found as far west as Iowa. They’re also native to the maritime provinces of Canada, which include New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and Prince Edward Island. Their numbers in the southern portion of the United States have been thinned out by the Rainbow Trout which is a competitor and sometimes predator of the Brook Trout.
