Default Trout Question

I have always noticed that when I catch smaller trout they often have “elliptical” spots running the length of their body (rainbows and brooks specifically) I just assumed that the spots go away as the trout gets older or larger. I was wondering if there is an age at which these go away or is it more to do with diet or even time of the year?

Here are some pics showing what im talking about

Here are some brooks

there is a reason they dont call it "catching"
