Take a look at this site for some good pictures of each species
Keep in mind that fish in different streams can look different, as well, due to the fact that the breeding is not controlled in the park (like hatcheries), so some variation has crept into each species.
Pete, thanks for the info. I'm a newbie to the park streams and don't know much. I learned a tonfrom the guys at LRO. I thought I was going to bug them to death last weekend.
