We've had big brookie discussions here before, and anyone interested might check this link:
http://outdoorsbest.zeroforum.com/zerothread?id=568332

The guy shot a short video of brookies spawning on the Battenkill. http://www.tuswvt.org. He says some of the brookies are 12-13 inches. And that since C&R the number of large brookies has gone way up. Says a guide got a client into a 16-incher.

Interesting stuff. Maybe I'll make a trip next season....

There is a stream back by my parents house in Mass that is loaded with brookies and the state or most fisherman simply pass it by. The stream gets crowded for the first couple weeks out of the season and then it dies down to almost nothing. You can fish it year round and catch a ton of fish. I have caught several 9" brookies and the majority of fish are around 6-8". I am always amazed when I fish this gem because no ones seems to pay it any mind.

here's a big brookie taken by a lady in a small pool I had just passed up. It was in a state park north of brookville. Don't remember the name right now...I gave her my card and told her I'd email it ot her. She never emailed.

The state park north of Brookville might be Clear Creek SP. That brook trout looks like a stockie.

yes, that's it Clear Creek. It was opneing weekend and I had to leave early sunday but I wasn't done fishing so I was looking for somewhere sort of on the way home. I had panned on trying the clarion but it was ungodly windy.

I'm pretty sure it was a stocky but it was in nice shape. Nice square tail and pretty fins. Not at all what I was seeing the day before.

here is a 16" brookie. It has nice coloration and nice fins, but based upon where I caught it I would say it is a stockie. Probably a well-kept breeder.
