When Brook Trout Spawn
The brook trout spawns in the fall. Full grown specimens will weigh from a half pound to five or six pounds, depending on the kind of water they inhabit, and the food supply. In Maine and Canada brook trout weighing over ten pounds have been taken, and in some waters four and five pounders are quite common. Being slender in build they run much longer, weight for weight, than the black bass. A trout of fifteen inches will weigh a pound and a half, and one of twenty inches will weigh about three and a half pounds. A trout two feet long will weigh about six pounds. Of course these weights are only approximate, as in some waters they are more slender than in others, just as their color varies in different waters.
