This may help. I put this together a couple years ago, it seemed a lot of guys that fish the lower end of Lk Huron caught browns and were calling them atlantics. I put the red lines in on the jaw to show the difference. The top and bottom fish (atlantic) are the same fish with the middle fish a brown.

Brown Trout

seeforellen strain.

I had the exact same thing happen to me and i initially thought it was an atlantic aswell.


Thats the one i caught

i sure am glad im not a fish expert, as your fish looks just like a atlantic to me. the mouth extends to the back of the eye and it has the x,s on the upper part of the body. but like i said i dont know the difference from one fish to another. im just going by the picture of both fish. no offence given.

Remember, Atlantics are a salmon, Salmo salar-deep forked caudal fins, spots are more sporadic and weaker than a brown trout's, sharper angle to the head and jaw, lending a more torpedo-like lateral appearance. You can go the vomer tooth count route, but it is not very easy to do when the fish is long dead.

Hey Ryan its a Brown trout.

Browns= spots below latera line

square tail

Atlantic spots-[x's] only above lateral line

Slighty forked tail

mouth usually black-dark inside

Mouth does not extend beyond the eye.

I caught an atlantic out of rockport-lake huron tonight and it was checked by dnr

fish checker.
