Rainbow Trout

The Rainbow Trout, Steelhead or Oncorhynchus mykiss is one of the most widely introduced fish in the world. It is in every continent except Antarctica and provides food for many people around the world. The Steelhead version is a salt water fish, but returns to fresh water to spawn. The Rainbow Trout spends its entire life in fresh water. They can grow to over 4' and weigh in at over 40lbs, so there is plenty of meat to enjoy on this fish. The Rainbow Trout normally eats smaller fish, crawfish and small insects. One unique characteristic about the Rainbow Trout is that it is anadromous, which simply means they return to their original birth place to spawn. This trait makes fly fishing in rivers one of the most popular ways to catch Rainbow Trout. Check out this video for more information about the Rainbow Trout...
