Rainbow Trout: Few freshwater fish can match the fighting spirit and beauty of a Rainbow Trout.

The Rainbow Trout is a well-traveled species of fish. Originally, the Rainbow Trout was found in the coastal rivers in the United States on the west coast but today, Rainbow Trout are found throughout the United States, as well as in the cold-water streams of South America, Europe, New Zealand and even Australia.

The reason for the wide range of Rainbow Trout in the U.S. is that Rainbow Trout are relatively easy to transplant.

Virtually all areas that Rainbow Trout now inhabit are due to environmental transplants – both intentionally or unintentionally.

Regardless, Rainbow Trout are the most popular types of trout found in the world today, and are also the most sought after trout by fly fishermen.

The Rainbow Trout is equally famous for it’s acrobatic aerial displays and very long runs to avoid being caught.

Rainbow Trout are also well-known for being highly selective in what they eat. While at other times, they seemingly gorge themselves on just about everything in sight.

Rainbow Trout are easily distinguished by the red stripe that travels the length of the fish, from the gill plates to the tail. Rainbow Trout also have hundreds of black spots that cover the dorsal of the body (the dorsal part of the body of a trout refers to the “back side" of the fish).

Brown Trout : Brown Trout are the "smartest" of the trout family, frequently frustrating beginners and professionals alike.
