Is this a golden trout? Genus/species?
wow those are awesome, now i wanna find were i can catch one. Which will in turn will make me hate gas prices even more.....lol
Never seen one of those before. I'd like to catch one of those someday.
They call them Lightning Trout out here. At first I thought that the Cormorants would just eat those up first because they are so visible. After finally catching some I found them to be quite different than a regular Rainbow.They remind me more of a Triploid style but the hatchery says they are a mutation of only 1 color producing gene. These fish were all stockier in build and just plain stronger. And Silver-white with that red stripe. I wish they would send more out this way, I like them.
I took this picture of a trout at the aquarium in Denver. I was thinking it was a Golden Trout, but I couldn't swear on it. [inline trout.jpg]
Wow. Never heard of them--are they common? I have seen them referenced here several times. My guess is they have been selectively raised and inhabit certain areas?
Oncorhynchus mykiss - AKA Rainbow trout. Banana trout are rainbow trout with a lack of melanin pigment and that gives them a light yellow color - like albinos. But, they are not true albinos - one difference, they don't have red eyes.
