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.
