Size of Small Stream Trout

As a general thing you will not often find trout much over a quarter of a pound in the average small mountain stream; but conditions vary and occasionally you will take or see taken trout weighing a pound or more. Many small brooks, although not very wide, may be comparatively deep. Those flowing through meadow lands and with sandy or muddy bottoms are apt to be of this sort; possibly the brook may not be over six feet wide, but there will be many places where the depth is from three to five feet with fine trout shelters hollowed out beneath the banks.

There is a brook of this sort, well-known to the writer, which flows partly in Connecticut and partly in Massachusetts. Its average width is not over five feet and the stream bed is black mud. Mostly it flows through an alder swamp, with here and there a very little open fishing in old slashing. Anglers who have "sand" enough to fish this brook through the swamp— football is child's play in comparison—show baskets of trout that would drive the average angler crazy. Many times the creels show from a dozen to twenty trout, not a single one less than a pound, and running from that up to two pounds and a half. This is not a fish story alleged but one experienced.

In view of this it is a good plan to find out from local anglers whether the stream you are to fish has a reputation for an occasional large trout and outfit accordingly. It is rather disconcerting, to say the least, when you are sure that a quarter of a pound is the limit for the stream, to have a pound fish roll up to your flies—and a rattled fisherman means a lost fish.
