 Trout is referred to some species under the subfamily Salmoninae which are fishes that can befound in freshwater and saltwater or both. The well known salmon is one member of the troutfamily, and unlike other trout members it prefers to stay in saltwater. Here are some highlights on famous members of the trout family explained in an alphabeticalorder #1 - Adriatic trout, Salmo obtusirostris Other name(s): Adriatic salmon, soft mouth trout, soft muzzled trout. This is both a freshwater andsaltwater fish which comes from genus Salmo, the salmonid fish species. Adriatic trout can be found endemic in Western Balkan rivers of the South East European area.They are considered as a favorite game fish, which are chased for sport by fishermen forrecreation and fun. Physical characteristics: extended muzzle with a small and soft mouth. They are large sized andpossess high body depth. Body colors are mostly a combination of red and green with black dots.Unlike the brown trout, Adriatic trout does not have vertical stripes on its body #2 - Brook trout, Salvelinus fontinalis Other name(s): Speckled trout, spotted trout, coaster trout, squaretail, mountain trout, char. Brooktrout are from the genus Salvelinus. The brook trout is actually not a trout, but it is a char like theother so called trout fishes; lake trout, Dolly Varden trout and the arctic char. Brook trout can be found in clear water streams or brooks (that is why they are called after), springponds and lakes. It lives in a wide area of the eastern part of North America, but is also spreadsouthwards of the region. Physical characteristics: It has a greenish brown color with a unique marble like pattern of yellowspots across the whole trunk which can extend to the back fin or even to the tail. It has a reddishbelly and lower fin. These lower fins are showing a white leading border. When spawning, the bellyof the male becomes extremely orange to red. A maximum recorded length and weight of this fishis 86 cm and 6.6 kg respectively. #3 - Brown trout, Salmo trutta Other name(s): German brown trout, brownie, lake trout. Brown trout is of the same species of thesea trout. The difference is in their habitat, where the brown trout is more a freshwater fish, whilethe sea trout is an anadromous migrating fish, where it lives in the sea but spawn in fresh waters. Brown trout is native to Europe and Asia, but you can also find them stocked in lands far from thesea like Estonia and Greece. The best area for brown trout fishing in the state is located in theWhite River, Arkansas where you can find plenty of resorts that provides you with various troutfishing facilities.
 This brown trout is the most popular game fish. The largest brown trout ever caught weighed 40pounds and 4 ounces, from the Little Red River, Arkansas in 1992, which is a record held byHoward Collin. Brown trout grow fast, since they eat almost everything; larvae, pupae, nymphsand adult insects. Larger trout even eats small fishes, frogs and snakes. A lot of brown trout areable to achieve a weight that averages between 12 - 20 pounds and some are able to reach anage of 20 years. Physical characteristics: It has a brownish to gold color on its back with a cream to white colorbelly. Their color combination patterns are yellow, gray, black and sometimes with red spots.These round spots have always a white border. Between the back and the middle spin you canfind an obvious spotted fat gland. On the other hand, at its square formed tail you do not see anyspot or other marks on its back, which make them different to other trout #4 - Cutthroat trout, Oncorhynchus clarkii Other name(s): Clark's trout, Yellowstone cutthroat trout, short-tailed trout, red-throated trout,Colorado River cutthroat trout. This freshwater fish from the genus Oncorrhynchus has probablyaround 15 subspecies with different names, which all of them are hunted as game fish by flyfishermen. Cutthroat trout is native to the western part of North America. The cutthroat evolved into manysubspecies and resides along the Pacific Northwest coast, in the Cascade Range, the Great Basinand all through the Rocky Mountains. Some of them are anadromous population, but the majorityof the subspecies are true non-migratory freshwater fish. Physical characteristics: This fish can be found in many sizes, colors and habitats. Depending onsubspecies, the basic color on its back may range from golden, grey to green. The distinctivediagnostic feature of the cutthroat is the red, pink or orange strip under its lower jaw. #5 - Flathead trout, Salmo platycephalus Other name(s): Ala balik, Turkish trout. This is an endemic population in the south-eastern part ofTurkey. It resides in three streams of the Zamanti River branch in the Seyhan River basin. In spiteof their copious population, they are subject to habitat loss due to its small range. Another threat isthe predation of young rainbow trout introduced to this region. This population decline is categorized as critically endangered and since it is a unique form of troutderived from the brown trout, it needs some protection. #6 - Golden trout, Oncorhynchus aguabonita Other name(s): Kern river trout, California golden trout. Golden trout, native to California is actuallya subspecies of the Rainbow trout. It resides in the Golden Trout Creek, Volcano Creek and theSouth Fork Kern River. It is pity that this species is at the edge for being specified as threatened. The cause of thispopulation decline is the introduction of brook trout that wins the battle in getting food, introduction
of the brown trout that makes them a prey and the hybridization with the introduced rainbow trout. In spite of their population decline, the golden trout once had its record of 70 cm long and 5.1 kgweight which was caught by Charles S. Reed in 1948 from Cook Lake in the Wind River Range. Physical characteristics: The specific feature is its golden flanks with a "parr marks" on both sides,which is a red, horizontal line along the body of the trout with 10 dark oval marks. The back, sideand anal fins are marked with a white edge. Their average size ranges from 15 - 30 cm. #7 - Rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss Other name(s): Black spotted trout, steelhead, silver trout, bow trout. This species is native to therivers of the Pacific Ocean in both the Asian and North American side. Rainbow trout areintroduced as food as well as for sport to more than 45 countries in the world. Rainbow trout isconsidered a fastwater fish, which prefers the swift runs and riffle areas of streams Introduced rainbow trout in some region such as Australia, South America and Southern Europeare contributing negative impacts to the native fish species. This is by making the native fish asfood, out compete them in food race, transmitting some contagious diseases and hybridizationwith other related species. Physical characteristics: Rainbow trout possess a typical trout shape and spins with fat glands.The square shaped tail has black spots spread over the entire tail with 10 - 12 rays on its analside. It has a white mouth and gums. Uno Birawan is a trout fishing enthusiastic for more than 15 years.
