While I have never kept the tiger trout I have caught (6). Would a tiger be counted as a brown or brookie in the DNR's eyes?

It would apply as "other trout" I'm guessing. No point in keeping one really.

Humble brag alert! Wink

I'm jealous. Have never caught a tiger that I know of. In my first few years of fly fishing I couldn't tell the difference between browns and brooks, so maybe I have caught 6 or 10 of them. That's a good story. I'm going to stick with that.

But seriously, nice job on your tiger success.

Well, they can't reproduce so it really doesn't matter whether you keep them or not in my eyes. I know a lot of people drool over them, but I've caught a few and they're really not that pretty in my opinion, not nearly as pretty as brooks.

Tiger trout are unbelievably good tasting! Right up there with bald eagle!

The fact that they can't reproduce and all fish are first generation hybrids makes them that much rarer. I'll always love Brookies the most but I'd rather give someone else an opportunity to catch a Tiger than eat it.

I can understand that. Good point.
