SEA RUN BROOK TROUT (Anadromous)

SEA RUN BROOK TROUT (Anadromous)

Here in Quebec North Shore region we are blessed with lots of rivers holding anadromous brook trout also known as sea run brookies.

I will start with the Kelt version of those brookies

The sea run kelts descend the rivers in mid to late April and in some cases up to mid May. Kelts are not present in every river it has to be a big deep river to hold sea run brook trout all winter. Most of all the sea run will leave the river and head out to the ocean in Late December. They leave the rivers to come feed on the available capelin and sand eels.

Notice the shape of these brook trout

Season to fish Kelts id from Late April to Late May







Sea run brook trout

In late Mai to late June these same kelts will have got fatter and healthier with all the feeding done in the estuary. These fish are bright silver when fresh. After they enter the river in around 10 to 14 days they begin to lose their guanine built up from their trip in the ocean, their colorful colors start showing more and more, even the red and blue spot and olive vermiculations are visible now and to distinguish them from regular non anadromous sea run is practically impossible


Fishing Season Starts LAte May to Late August











Now here are some pictures of non sea run brook trout.















If you have any question regarding sea run brook trout like flies and rivers to fish for them feel free to ask

Jocelin,

Those trout are absolutely beautiful. Look at those colors.
Is that Gatti rod in the first picture a G4?

The reason I asked about the rod is I am becoming a fan of the Gatti rods. I built a 6 wt G4 a month ago & I am thinking of building another maybe a 4 wt

Great trout pictures. I miss fishing in Quebec. When I was around 10 I spent weeks in the summer on a cousins farm in Roxton Falls and wormed fish for Rainbows in the Black River and my father would take me to some of the many lakes around La Torque by pontoon plane or tractor for lake and speckled trout. Things are so built up around that area now that I hardly recognized those places when I went back about 5 years ago. There are so many locations in Quebec for trout that they are countless. Thanks for those Pictures.

I have become a gatti fan also in the last 4 years, I have around 6 gatti rods now from the small FRLW #2 to the big FR 118 3 PA (11 foot #8).

Hard to beat the G4 price tag in the near future you will have the G5 comming in the market scene as a blank.

If you want more info on the g5 shot me an email
