Fish: Brown Trout

Brown Trout with Black Teeth

Post By: Franktown      Posted: 4/27/2020 8:22:22 AM     Points: 0    
I was fly fishing yesterday at a local pond in Fairplay CO and I caught a small brown trout.  When taking out the hook I noticed it's teeth (specifically on the bottom) were all black.  Because of this you could easily see the each little black spike in it's white mouth.  After touching them they were very sharp and seemed sharper than your average trout but maybe it's just because they looked so defined.  I have never seen a trout with black teeth and I can't seem to find any photos online that are even close to what I saw.  Has anyone ever seen something like this when trout fishing?  I didn't think much of it it the time but now I really wish I took a picture before I released it.  I've fished since I was a boy and I can identify different trout species easily.  I'm 99% positive that this was a brown trout.  My only uncertainty is from the black teeth. Please let me know your thoughts.  Thanks and any feedback would be kindly appreciated.

Can't say I've ever noticed one like that. If the fish look healthy I would guess just a unique pigmentation coloration.

Would your local pond be an old mine related excavation? If so,this could be related to what was mined there and or used to seperate the item mined there.

My guess is it was eating black bugs or something that color, but why only the bottom teeth seems strange indeed. Fishseal where are you?

Something lacking in the fishs diet . . . .bottom teeth are more remote from the rest of the body?
