Brook Trout (Salvelinus fontinalis)
Habitat: Water temperatures are the most important factor in Brook Trout habitat. They thrive in water temperatures of near freezing (32°Fahrenheit) to about 65°F. Temperatures between 55°F and 60°F are most ideal. However, the Brook Trout will tolerate brief periods of temperatures up to 72°F. They will die if exposed to temperatures of 75°F and above for only a few hours.
Orders of 6‐8” trout must be picked up on May 3rd between 12:00 and 1:00 pm at Oxbow Park (at the end of Portland Street past Morrisville Lumber). After 1:00 pm, we will forfeit unclaimed orders and will not keep the trout. Trout are provided in an air sealed large plastic bag. It’s best to stock trout immediately in your pond after pick up to insure their survival.
