Coloration of Brook Trout

While the Eastern brook trout is undoubtedly in coloration the most beautiful of all game fishes, in formation, especially as regards very large trout of, say, three pounds or over, its position is not so clearly first. The male trout of this weight, however finely marked with various tints of blue, crimson, and gold, tends dangerously to aldermanic girth and, with his usual under-shot and cruel lower jaw, is rather a creature to respect for gameness and fighting-blood than to admire artistically.

The quality of coloration in the brook trout, too, is dependent to a great extent upon the immediate surroundings affected by the fish. That this is a matter of protective coloration should go without gainsaying. In very dark waters, well shaded and with muddy or darkly colored bottom, the brook trout is sympathetically of subdued coloration, sometimes almost black—a very dark purple. On the other hand, in clear streams running over white gravel or pebbly beds, the trout are lightly tinted and often have a golden luster or sheen that is unequaled for beauty. The wise men tell us that variation of color in brook trout is caused by the light acting through the nerves of the eye upon certain color glands. It is also dependent to a certain extent upon the natural food most common to the stream, trout which have an abundance of insect food being the most brilliant in coloration as well as the largest.
