Trout anglers in Virginia and throughout much of the southeastern United States have begun their annual spring migration to the clear streams of the Southern Appalachians. With skill and luck, they should catch a fair number of trout, including brook trout, a beautifully colored speckled fish that is native to the eastern U.S. These delicate trout have been in eastern streams since the last ice age when they were stranded there after the glaciers retreated. But they may not be there for long.
