About this Species 

< Back
Name:Brown Trout
Family:Trout
Scientific Name: Salmo trutta
Range:Browns reproduce in the White River, below Bull Shoals Dam and in the Little Red River. Seasonal fishing closures in the early winter on the White River protect the most active spawning areas.
Habits and Habitat:Brown trout prefer water temperatures between 50 and 60 degrees. Young browns feed mostly on small aquatic invertebrates, while adults prefer crayfish and fish.
Fish Fact: Most trout waters in Arkansas must be stocked to maintain the population, but brown trout are one of the few trout species that reproduces well in Arkansas, offering a "wild" fishery with only minor stockings.
