Rainbow Trout fishing

Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) is a salmonid fish which actually has two varieties: the salt water 'version' the steelhead and the fresh water species which lives in cold water rivers and lakes.

River adult rainbow trout can weigh up to 2,5kg (5lb), whereas stealhead and lake rainbow trout can weith up to 9kg (20lb).

Rainbow trout love insect larvae, nymphs which is why they are one of the favourite fish for fly fishing enthusiasts. Rainbow trout are also caught spinning with all kind of lures such as spinner baits, spoons, plugs, jigs, poppers, rubber lures and live or dead baitfish.
