Brook Trout: Preserving New York's State Fish

New York's state freshwater fish is the brook trout. To help preserve heritage strains of brook trout in the Adirondacks, DEC Fisheries staff travel to remote ponds to conduct egg takes. Eggs and milt are taken from captured fish. The eggs are fertilized and taken to a fish hatchery to grow before being stocked in ponds throughout the Adirondacks.

I always knew they stocked them this way, but really cool seeing it in action!

The state hatchery in Rome , NY has raised the Horn Lake strain for years.

If there were only decent regulations and enforcement to protect them.
“Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. They smelled of moss in your hand. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes. Of a thing which could not be put back. Not be made right again. In the deep glens where they lived all things were older than man and they hummed of mystery.”

Thanks Bunch. This is great and hope it continues for years to come. Per Glen concern, down here (Westchester/Putnam/Dutchess) there are not enough DEP and DEC cops to handle all the poaching, so I can only image how tough it is to cover all up in the Park.

It is great that they are doing this especially because without it brook trout fishing wouldn't exist as an option in so many Adirondack ponds.

That being said I always find it sad that the only way New York states freshwater fish can exist in so many places now is with stocking thanks to all of the damage we have done.
