It’s All About the Destination
Just like any other fish, finding the right destinations is key to finding bigger brook trout. For these fish, you’re most likely going to have to go way north or up into the mountains to find trophy-sized brook trout. You may have to drive a little further or get on a plane and travel further than you would for other species of fish.
Fish Lakes Instead of Rivers
There are some awesome rivers for catching brook trout and some rivers are home to some big brook trout, however, you can usually find the bigger brook trout living in bigger lakes. The bigger lakes with access to deeper water and tons of bait fish can help grow some very big brook trout compared to rivers.
