Michigan State Fish
The Brook Trout
The Brook trout was adopted as Michigan's State Fish in 1988. The Brook Trout, a native to Michigan, puts up an excellent fight for its size. The brook trout is olive with lighter sides and a reddish belly (in males) and easily identified by the light colored edges of the lower fins.
