It seems odd that a hybrid would qulify as a brook trout.
this fish is a GENETICALLY PURE brookie and has not been changed by any crossing by any hatchery
this is a windfall strain heritage brooktrout.please read a book by keller on n.y.s brookies about 1979
in his book he states there is about 10 strains??? left in n.y, what are genetically pure.when i fished
in the mid 50's you could SEE the difference in the colors
hope this helps
 ;D ;D ;D

this brook trout was caught from a pond that was killed off by acid rain and couldn't sustain any kind of fish population until 2002 when the water started to neutralize and DEC did an experimental stocking in the lake and obviously it was successful. my uncle was with him and he caught a 4lbser the same day as this one. this man puts a lot of time in fishing these ponds and catches a lot of big trout

yes and the pond he got it out of is by no means a short walk at about 5 miles back in

If you want to see the previous brookie record look  on page 8 of the NYS Conservationist magizine(June 2013)  and see William Altman and his 5 lb. 14 oz. 21 inch brookie caught on 5/6/12  caught on a lake clear wabbler in the West Canada Wilderness Area, Hamilton County. Also posted are other record fish (pages7-9).New York has got some great fishing! :) :) :)

Sorry to hear that. He will be remembered by this record, though. A legend.
