Way to go!
Brook trout have lost approximately 75% of their native range in the park since the early 1900s mostly due to logging and the introduction of non-native rainbow and brown trout. As brook trout disappeared from the streams, anglers brought in rainbow trout and brown trout to “improve” fishing in the mountains. These non-native species are larger and more prolific in spawning which further decreases the number of brook trout in the park.
