Default Bronze trout

Hope someone can help me out here. I'm aware of different kinds of trout. Wasn't too long ago that I had only heard of the three (browns, brookies and rainbow).

While perusing some bamboo rod sites, I came across mention of an allusive and hard to catch "bronze trout" that evidently is rare but catchable in Maine.

Here is a photo of it. Am I crazy or does this thing look like a chubb? Is the name "bronze trout" a code name for "chubb/fall fish"?

You got it, sometimes we call'em Rocky River Bonefish, or what ever river it might be.

That is an enourmous species of Chub. We have a few species here but none of them ever get that big, at least not that I have ever seen.

They get big here in NH, too.

I've caught a few that really whacked the fly. Thought I had a good trout.

You ain't kidding! Only chubb I have caught was ice fishing at Everett Lake at Clough State Park. The thing was huge. About the size of a 1 1/2 pound bass!

And they are in the minnow family.

I'm with theboz. That's a fall fish and they get big. I see em in my local river all the time to 12-14 inches.
They love dry flies but they're not worth the slime.
theboz likes this.

Not worth the slime is so true! Haha! And they always seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong time! Last one I caught bog smallies busting all around see a rise ,all pumped up ,cast bam fallfish what a let down . But that's fishing and better then nothing I guess.
Oh and the love the same yellow poppers Delaware River Smallmouths love!
Dang big minnows!
