What to Know About Rainbow Trout in Alaska
Basic Description: The rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) is a trout and species of salmonid native to cold-water tributaries of the Pacific Ocean in Asia and North America. The steelhead (sometimes called “steelhead trout”) is an anadromous (sea-run) form of the coastal rainbow trout (O. m. irideus) or Columbia River redband trout (O. m. gairdneri)
Physical Description: Rainbow trout are 1 to 5 pounds, but in other areas they can be 20 pounds. They are usually blue-green or olive green with heavy black spotting over the length of their body. There is a red stripe, most apparent on breeding males, which runs from the gills, to the tail. The caudal fin is generally not forked. Lake-dwelling and anadromous forms are typically more silvery in color with a red stripe that is barely noticeable.
Season: From early June to mid-October.
