The new tiger trout seem to be following the same pattern as previous trout stocked the past 2 years. They were stocked this past Monday and while I was up there yesterday and today they didn't touch any of the pellets when the feeder went off twice a day, and this is the same feed they were getting at the hatchery.
I could see them hitting the surface once in a while at the far end by the islands so apparently they have gone Au Naturel on forage. Water temp. is up to 52.3F.

I got a well fed 8" brookie yesterday from the stream, he could be one of the ones I returned to the stream last fall, that makes 5 this month, now residing in the pond.

The Tigers still won't eat any of the trout feed but they sure are hitting the bugs that have been hatching by the millions.
Not sure if they will start eating the pellets when the hatch stops or just switch to other bugs and minnows, also plenty of frog eggs waiting to hatch.

The Tigers have grown well this summer, I did some fishing to check on the trout growth and caught 4 tigers ranging from 9 to 12 inches, when stocked this spring they were 4 to 7 inches.
I didn't catch any of the BRKT, but did get some 3 weeks ago, as always the tigers are much more aggressive.

One has a spot and worm pattern, and the other just a worm pattern.

Pretty fish! I sure hope they can survive the winter this year with all your improvements.

I'm not that partial to them... Brook trout are very pretty in their own right. The thing I like about tiger trout besides their pretty looks is just how rare they are in the wild.

I think you are going to be thrilled with the Tigers in your pond!

I caught this one last June in a local river that drains in to the Delaware. I don't know how to determine if this is a naturally occurring Tiger or a hatchery fish that made it's way up from the Delaware. NY State claims they never stocked them.



Around these parts we are lucky to get a brook trout over 12 inches. Brookies are certainly a very aggressive fish but I have no idea what kind of fight a 20 inch brook trout would give.

This is my first and only Tiger in near 60 years of fishing and to be perfectly honest a true thrill to catch. I don't think I will kill another but I had absolutely no idea what I had caught and had to bring it home for the research.

These fish are voracious when feeding and a true fighter on the end of your line in a swift stream with 4 pound ultralight gear. At first sight during the fight I thought I hooked a pickerel. Only when I finally landed the fish did I realize I had a trout of very strange markings.

I don't know the ethics involved but I can say for sure that any fisherman who ties into a Tiger will have a very big smile if he ever gets it landed. As far as I am concerned NY has my expressed permission to stock these fine fish as close to me as possible.

Hey Gary welcome to the PB Forum, that's a real nice Tiger you got, are you planning on having him mounted?

PA. has stocked Tigers, maybe he made his way from a PA. stream into the Delaware river and up the river you caught him in, or maybe you caught one of those rare natural tigers, usually from a female brown and male brookie.

As the N Ga Regional Fisheries Supervisor once said, "if you like the parent species you should be glad tigers are so rare". There is absolutely nothing better than catching wild brookies in the N Ga mountains...

MY grandfather use to have some, they never got as fat as other trout but they fought harder than any other trout. They tasted ok but nothing compares to the brook trout in taste.
