Rainbow trout were originally abundant only in North American rivers, then they were introduced to other waters around the world due to its delicious taste and challenge as a fighting game fish. Rainbow trout are generally a smaller cousin to the Salmon fish. They thrive in cold clear water. When you see the presence of trout in a river by you, it is a good indicator that the river is healthy, clean and pristine.

The Rainbow Trout is a species relative to the salmonid family. They are commonly found in the tributaries of North America, but are introduced around the world for sport and food.  Just like their cousin, the Steelhead, later in life, Rainbow Trout always return to their hatching area upriver to spawn.
