Brook trout are thriving again in Cold Spring Brook and other streams in southeastern Minnesota, thanks to a secret locked in their genes.

Brook trout are the only trout native to this corner of the state. Beginning in the 1840s, they were nearly wiped out by overfishing and destruction of their stream habitats.

Restocking of the streams with East Coast strains of brookies began early in the 20th century. Water conditions also improved, and today, brook trout swim in 26 of Minnesota's 67 chilly, spring-fed southeast streams.

Just so you know, I stopped at that little stream last spring and the early spring rains did a lot of damage.Big gully washes. Many of the cut banks collapsed and it may be a while before the really good habitat comes back. Kind of sad. I'm sure it will improve, but it's off my list for a season or two.
