Brown trout

Brown trout were introduced to North America from Europe (specifically Germany, Ireland, England and Scotland) in the late-1880's, and well-established populations of Browns are now found in over forty states. Brown trout are predominantly light brown or tan in color, and have large dark brown or black spots along their sides, usually with some red or orange spots lower on the body towards the belly. Their spots often have whitish to bluish halos. There are few to no spots on a distinctively squared tail. Brown trout feed on the surface more than any other trout species with peak activity occurring around dawn and dusk. They are very territorial and aggressive fish, and are often regarded as the most difficult trout species to catch.
