Here is a Wild Brookie that stretched just under the 15 inch mark. She took a small streamer and put up a great fight!!

Another fantastic brookie to dispell the PA rumors that they don't get that big. Congrats!


PS... when can I come?

What a beautiful native! It's not that they don't get that big, it's that they very rarely get that big. That is a trophy brookie for sure. Congrats.

In addition to simply abundant food, limestoners allow a much more "cushy" overwintering and over summering in comparison to most freestones, so the trout can continue to feed and put on good growth.

Then there's genetics. You can only get so big if your life span is 4 years. If your life span is 6 years or 8 years or older, obviously you can get even bigger. I've caught nice 16-inch char in the Connecticut river in New Hampshire that I don't think were stockers, but I doubt they got that big just because of big water and forage, either.

Certainly the CV limestoner fishermen of old, as mentioned by the old Turf Register and other publications, mentioned brook trout at several pounds.

Don't know where this is but that there is a handsome char irrespective of the size debate.
