    Trout Lake is an old silver mining town that dates to 1890, and was part of a massive boom in silver, gold, lead and zinc mining. Trout Lake City's hey-day ran from around 1897 to 1907, when the population exceeded 1,000. The town site was full of silver prospectors, and just as importantly, all the businesses to serve them. The budding city quickly obtained numerous stores and hotels, a hospital, a school, churches, and a skating rink. Sitting at the head of Trout Lake it was also expected to be a major transportation hub.
