Early Autumn

Got out this past weekend to do a little early autumn brook trout fishing. Nice weather however not yet cool enough that one doesn’t work up a sweat trekking around in waders. But that’s OK I just moved a little bit slower up through the stream and over the rocks. There wasn’t much of any hatch on the water or a whole lot of activity in general, most of the brookies were more concerned with getting their gravel beds ready for spawning. A few fish were willing to bite and entertain me, and I want to thank them for their kindness because otherwise I would have been standing in that stream waving a stick simply for the pleasing view.

Do the spots on that fish change color as the seasons change? It’s almost like it has the yellow and red dots right now to mix in with the fall leaves that are floating on the stream.

Well the colors of brook trout become more pronounced during spawning season which is currently getting underway. The bellies also seem to get more orange during this time and what they eat can influence their coloration as well. But you are right whenever I catch them I always feel like their colors encapsulate the colors of the trees and other things in the environment around them.

I was wondering the same thing, the pink spots almost look painted on!
