    awesome rainbow photos.
     
  5. i like your pictures very much, im glade i got on this web site,ive won alot of awards on trout,but i always want to learn about this specie,thank you mickey bowman lawton okla.
     
  6. These are a few beautiful redband trout (Rainbow trout subspecies) they where caught in 1990 ni Hyalite Canyon Montana
    these fish where beautiful!. in fact they where the reason i got into taxidermy.
    the first fish is a young fish only 6" long the color is washed out. the fish was dead, and about to be dinner on the trail.
     
  7. the next fish was amazing!. it is about 11" long and like all redbands still has dark parr marks.
     
  8. here is another photo of the same fish but the other side.
    If anyone knows the latin name for this species i would apreceate it. I believe it is an Interior redband (Oncorhynchus mykiss gairdneri) but iam not positive
    beautiful fish

    Since I’m sharing photo, I have two more to share. They are from this spring and were taken from a lake. The water temps were cold and these rainbow trout were pale. You could see all the undertones and the parr marks. The first photo was from the front. The second photo is from the side and really shows the scale tipping. It was also neat to see the couple we kept as they warmed, how their color changed to the normal rainbow colors we usually see.
