Growth of Brook Trout
Under favorable circumstances it takes about three years to make a pound trout, but the extent of the waters inhabited and the abundance or lack therein also the nature of the food supply—have great influence in determining the rate of growth of brook trout. As above noted they thrive best upon insect food. The range of the brook trout is quite extensive; for instance, they may be found in nearly all of the United States, although they are not indigenous to all of the States whose waters they now inhabit. As to the numbers in which they may be found in any given locality, it is well, when planning a fishing trip, to remember that often, as Henry Guy Carleton has said, the brook trout exists only "in the clear, cold, running prospectus of a hotel charging $4 a day."
