Hey guys -

Just for comparison's sake, it might be fun to look at the coloration of different brookies from around the country.

Yellowstone Park

Norfork River, Arkansas

Smokies (Road Prong)

Battenkill tributary, Vermont

North Georgia

Smokies (Deep Creek)

SW Montana

North Carolina

Also North Carolina

As you can see, there's a ton of overlap. The Vermont brookies I caught were the palest but that may have more to do with the particular stream ecology than with the actual strain. Most Western brook trout were stocked from Northern strain brood stock.
