Black trout

Unusually strange looking trout must have spent his life at the bottom of the lake or what?

Seen lots of these years ago in stethem lake came out of the same holes normal trout came from. If I remember right they had deep red meat. Was that one unusualy red?

Innes Lake, near Dorion, has dark lakers like this.

 

Sometimes so dark it's hard to see the spots.


Since we can not call female anglers "fisherman" We should just call 'em hookers.....

Typically the lakers in trafalgar bay are darker than the lakers caught in the main lake at northern light. I've also seen some pretty dark ones in stetham

Guessing over 1/2 the trout I have caught in Saganaga have been dark like that.  Not that I have caught many overall, especially the last couple years.

Hoping "Mad Scientist" will chime in on this. Regarding Greenwater...and it 'black' versus 'normal' colour trout. After fishing this lake for 20+ years we have noticed that the 'black' trout are consistently caught in the main lake basins(far off the shoreline). Usually in 70-90+ feet of water regardless if the are caught 2ft off the bottom or 30ft down in 90ft of water. 99% of all these trout are 'black'. Fish the shoreline, cliffs, islands etc in water 40-60ft the trout are consistently a lighter colour.  The 'black' trout always seem to be more streamlined compared to the 'lighter' trout. Are there 2 variations in the population? Thoughts?

 

Pictured are a pair of dark trout caught from 85ft of water compared to a pair caught along the shoreline in 40ft.

Maybe it’s a sunlight thing? Exposure to sunlight in shallower water over time leading to a change in pigmentation? Maybe adaparariom to hunting conditions, fish in deep water stay dark to match surroundings, lighter in shallower coastal water?

Adaptation, although adaparariom is a pretty cool word.
