Brook Trout can be found in cold water habitats of small headwater streams located within the Black Hills. They feed primarily on insects and crustaceans.
Brook Trout have streamlined, torpedo-shaped bodies with small scales and a large mouth. The tail (caudal) fin is rounded. The leading edge of the pelvic, pectoral and anal fins are white backed by a black line. The dark body has light, wormlike markings that fade to light spots on the sides; additional spots may be red circled by blue halos. Breeding males have red/maroon bellies and fins.
Limits apply to any combination of trout, salmon or splake.
