Maine a Brook Trout Stronghold

Last week Trout Unlimited released a new report on the state of native brook trout populations in the eastern U.S. According to their report, “Brook trout populations remain strong in only 5% of their historical habitat in the Eastern United States. They have been eliminated from 19% of their historic habitat, and they are greatly reduced in another 27% of habitat that formerly supported brook trout.” Maine has the healthiest population of all states.
