Visitor Tips and News About Big Trout Fountain
Not only does this big trout pack a lot of punch, he is accompanied by many other official state icons, such as the state bird (the robin) perching on the state flower (apple blossom). A wolverine lurks below a smaller statue of Michigan itself. The whole compound is quite impressive.[Kait, 06/16/2012]
