    Default Forgot this little fellow - broon or seatrout?

    This was from last backend (River Tees nr.Barnard Castle Co.Durham)and in another file so not been seen so far, I think, very definite spots but no brown or golds so I wonder......

    it can be so hard to tell somtimes I looks more like a brownie from loch leven or a rutland type fish rather than a wild river trout. We send fish scales away every year from our local river as many of the brownies we are catching are very much like sea trout but untill now they have all came back negative allthough they are the same fish they have not went to sea.

    Difficult to say from the photo but my guess would be brownie.

    It's a brownie. Look at the fins!! The yellow tinge on it's underbelly is also a dead giveaway.

    A brownie as sea trout are not as dark as that and also have more spade like tails like salmon although not the exact same as a salmon.


    Although still a nice looking fish all the same.

    Nice one...Martin

    It could be a sea trout that has been in fresh water for a while.
    It is a hen fish, most sea trout are hens.
    It is in superb condition, indicative of excellent feeding, perhaps at sea.
    Don't forget a sea trout is merely a brown which has gone to sea to feed, typically the hen fish.

    Given it's overall superb condition, and it's brightness I would go with a sea trout.
