Brook trout make Maine world-class fishing destination
The wild and native fish are a vital natural resource that provide an economic boost to the state.

Robert and Teresa Proctor of Atlanta have fished in New Zealand, Alaska, Chile, Belize and the Amazon. But every summer they travel to Libby Camps in Aroostook County in pursuit of wild and native brook trout.

“Brook trout are also native to Georgia. But a 9-inch brook trout is really big here,” said Robert Proctor. “We really enjoy catching (larger brook trout) in the combination of river and still water fishing that we get at Libby’s.”

The brightly colored “squaretail” is a top draw for fishermen who head to sporting camps in northern Maine. Wild and native brook trout are a vital natural resource that provide an economic boost to the state, but biologists are wary of invasive fish species that could threaten pristine waters where they thrive.
