The Rainbow Trout
The rainbow trout, Salmo irideus, is far less common to Eastern trout streams than the brown trout; in the West the rainbow is indigenous to many streams. This is a true trout, a salmon trout and not a char and, in fact, has more points in common with the brown trout than with the Eastern brook. It is a black-spotted trout; as in the case of the brown it will live in water of a higher temperature than will the native; it is famous for leaping when hooked, and is a faster grower than the native trout.
