Brown Trout

Brown trout have 2 dorsal fins including one adipose fin, a broad square tongue with 11-12 large teeth, light pectoral fins, a squire tail and 9-10 rays in the anal fin.  These fish are very popular among fly-fishermen in streams and rivers as well as shore anglers and boaters in the Great Lakes.  The size of brown trout will vary based on the water they come out of.  In smaller streams, a 2 to 3 pounder is considered a decent-sized fish while an 8 pounder is considered fairly average in the Great Lakes.
