Brook Trout – Salvelinus fontinalis, watercolor on paper, 12×9″, 2018, by Jean Krueger, copyrighted with all rights reserved
Brook Trout or Brookies or Salvelinus fontinalis are the ubiquitous American fish. They are native to this continent and thrive where water is cold and fast or cold and deep. They’re a favorite fish for the US Forest Service to plant as they have great sport fishing value, not too hard to catch. This guy painted here is full scale about 7-8 inches and is shown at full scale.
