2010/2/23 Lake Trout

Lake Trout
Salvelinus namaycush (Walbaum, 1792)

Stocked in 1960’s from North America then turned into native fish although stocking was halted after local fishery learnt about its predecious habitat.  Only place you could chase lake trout in Japan is Lake Chuzenji in Nikko.

Photograph is 105cm lake trout which made into JGFA record in 2008 caught in Lake Chuzenji.
