Rainbow Trout


Rainbow Trout


These fish are named after their pinkish stripe along their sides.  They also have black spots that cover the silvery flanks and the tail.  Rainbow trout are very acrobatic, known for their spectacular jumps once they are hooked.  They are a favorite of most fishermen because they taste great and provide excellent fights.  Rainbow trout can grow to some very large sizes.  The world record is over 30 pounds.  Rainbow trout are found in most states from coast to coast except some of the far southern states.  They are also found throughout the western part of the country and much of western Canada.
