Brown Trout

Brown Trout (Salmo trutta) is a non-native trout, originally from Europe and Asia. They prefer water temperatures between 55 degrees and 65 degrees F, which is a little warmer than most other trout species prefer and brown trout grow larger than many of the popular trout species. This has led to the wide introduced of them into North America, South America, Australia and New Zealand.
