Trout -

A species of Salmon found principally in fresh water. The chief American types are the Common Brook or Speckled, Lake or Mackinaw, Dolly Varden, Rainbow and Rocky Mountain. The three generally accepted classifications of the Eastern markets are the "English," in season from January to March; the "American," January to the middle of July; and the "Brook," or Speckled trout, April to August. "Mountain trout" is the title applied to the genuine wild Brook trout, the most highly esteemed by connoisseurs. The tint of the flesh varies from pink, considered the choicest, to white. The pink is generally that of the wild fish, the liver diet being perhaps responsible for the white meat of those "raised."

The varieties which the Common Brook or Speckled trout exhibit in tints and spots has led to the supposition that there are several distinct species. This is largely incorrect, as trout transferred from one locality to another soon change their colors. The Brook trout is an especially voracious creature and affords great sport to the angler who fishes with a fly. There is a fair demand in some sections for canned brook trout.

The Lake Trout, or "Mackinaw trout," is a large fish often attaining a weight of 50 to 60 pounds and of fine flavor, caught in the Great American Lakes. Considerable quantities are salted and sold in brine by the barrel.

Salmon trout is a name best reserved for the Steelhead Salmon, but it is also variously applied in some sections to several members of the trout family proper - especially to the Lake, the Dolly Varden and the Rocky Mountain.
