Brook "trout" are actually "charr" (Salvelinus genus), while cutthroat trout are actually "trout", (Oncorhynchus genus). I MUCH prefer charr to trout both for eating and "fight". Beauty too! I find all the charr 'prettier' than any of the trout. Although true golden trout (Oncorhynchus aguabonita, not the Frankenfish "golden" created in hatcheries), are right up there on the beauty scale. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_trout. Still, EVERY charr is spectacular to my eye, and among the best to eat of freshwater coldwater fish.

PS - Here's a way to tell if the fish you caught is a trout or a charr: Charr have a 'dark' body with 'light' spots, trout have a 'light' body with 'dark' spots. There are, of course, other taxonomic differences, but the "light on dark/dark on light" spot check is the best field characteristic.
