Anyone ever seen these markings on brook trout before? Two different fish. And the fish were not out of the water more than 10 seconds.

The yellow belly spot, yes. Not often, and always irregular as that one is. Never noticed the blue slash on the jaw.

The only anomaly I have seen, assuming you were in Rangeley, were lice or fungus in the brookies gills... it was gross, and couldn’t be good for them, but I emailed DIFW and no one seemed too worried.

I got one on the Kennebec before.

I thought I remembered calling difw to ask about it, thinking it was some sort of stocked fish marking. I vaguely remember it not being the case.

How’s that for an authoritative explanation?

I have caught a few Brook Trout with the yellow slash on the lower jaw but never so low on the body :?:
Pretty Cool

I've seen the yellow quite a bit. Never noticed the blue.

I caught one with the yellow patch before, and, although it was a long time ago, I remember it being more orange than that.

I swear I saw a blue slash one in a high res picture somewhere recently, like a calendar, or a magazine, or maybe a book. I can't recall ever seeing one in the flesh.

A small brook near Moose Mt. in NH produced trout with the yellow quite often. The blue I have not seen.
