Brook Trout (Salvelinus fontinalis)

Completely moved into the farmhouse now for three weeks. Took some time off from landscaping (six perennial beds completed) for brook trout fishing on the Black River (Gogebic County). Managed my limit, both Saturday and Sunday mornings at dawn. One 14 inch brookie, which even by U.P. standards, is a fine fish. Had him steamed on the grill with vegetables for dinner last night. Benny begs for the crispy tail.
The mosquitoes have been relentless this Spring-I believe they think my insect repellent is just a fine gravy over their meal.
