Lake Trout Description
The head and mouth of the lake trout are, proportionately, quite large, and the head is depressed, that is, rather flat. The tail is deeply forked. In coloration it is ordinarily a rather dark gray, marked profusely with spots of a lighter tinge. The head is marbled, or vermiculated, like the back of the brook trout. Occasionally the spots on the body will show a reddish shade. Generally speaking, the lake trout is a handsome and well-formed game fish, the larger specimens having length in proportion to girth. A fifteen- or sixteen pound fish will measure about thirty-two inches.
