Brook Trout

The 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 is 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.
