Brook trout

Brook trout are native to northeastern North America, and are now found throughout much of the eastern and western United States. Brook trout are predominantly green in color, and have lighter, wormlike marks along their back above the lateral line. The most distinctive marking is red spots surrounded by blue halos along their sides. Brookies, as they are affectionately referred to, often have bright red or reddish brown coloration on the belly and lower fins - each with a white leading edge. Brook trout almost never jump. Despite its name, the brook trout is actually a member of the char family.
