    Default Message Board Trout Picture

    I am embarrassed to ask but can't figure it out - what type of trout is pictured on the message board home page?

    I've never seen a rainbow with such vivid coloration especially on the gill plate. And its amber color, not a hint of green anywhere! Beautiful fiish indeed!

    Thanks for the link. I don't feel quite so dumb now that I know there is a story behind it.

    If my memory serves correct, it was caught on the Clinch River around a year ago. Can't remember who caught it. The colors are so bright from being caught during the rainbow spawn on the Clinch.

    Thanks for fixing my error, I was just leaving the office when I posted and just now did a follow up. I went ahead and fixed it also, reckon I should have proof read the link also.

    pineman19 and shinbruiser--I asked Byron about this particular trout a good many months ago, because the exceptionally vibrant colors caught my attention. He told me the photo was taken by a friend of his and that the trout was a tailwater fish (I'm almost certain from the Clinch).

    Some of the steelhead/lake run rainbows in Santeetlah have this kind of vibrant color when they make their fall runs, although those runs have now diminished to a very small faction of what they once were thanks to otters lying in wait at the mouth of Big Snowbird and Big Santeetlah.

    The fish is sure a thing of beauty.
