I have to go
1. Rainbow
2. Brown
3. Brookie

Brook and Mac are a little harder to tell at that size but it sure looks like the Brook to me.

2. Brown

3. Mackinaw

A Brookie that size would definitely be distinguishable.

From the look of the pics I would say that these fish were caught at Silver Lake. No brooks in Silver.

1. Rainbow
2. Brown
3. Mackinaw

These look like the fish we took from Caples. Nice hat trick.

This is true, they are chars. Macks, Brooks, and Dolly Vardens.

Oh yeah, by the way, macks are chars, they are more closely related to their cousins, brook trout, dolly varden, arctic char, and bull trout than brown trout. *Rainbow trout are of the genus Oncorynchus, wich makes them more closely related to Pacific salmon. *The only true trout you posted is the brown trout, Salmo trutta, which is most closely related to Atlantic Salmon. :o *Still think I don't know what I'm talking about?

Sockeye,
That was good [smiley=rotfl2.gif]
# 1 sure looks like an LCT and is #5 a koke ?, got the curved back and the nice silver color. Haven't fished for them much yet. And yes #2 is a beast.
It would help if Macdaddy gave us a little hint on length and lake. It could be Silver like CC said but If it was early this year or 2007 it could be Caples. If they are 12 to 14" range then his #3 has me stumped if it is Silver then Mac if Caples could still be Brook.
Come on MacDaddy give us the answer.

Sorry, all these fish were caught on 8/31/08 at Silver Lake, and all of them were released to get bigger. The only way they are DEAD, is if somone else caught them and kept them. 8-)

Since you're so up to date on the taxonomy of these fish, when I was a fish geek back in the day, the rainbow was a salmo gairdneirii. Why did Constantinople become Instanbul? Is Oncorynchus a new genus or did the rainbow/golden get sucked into an existing one?

The powers that be decided that rainbow trout had more in common with Pacific Salmon species, than they had in common with trout- Brown Trout. Their life cycle is more similiar to these fish than the "Salmo" genus. The genus name "Oncorynchus" means hooks jaw, which is a common spawning feature of Pacific Salmon. Not that browns and other salmonids don't develop this feature, but that's what it means. As far as an easy way to tell a mack from a brook, brooks have a squaretail, and macks have a forked tail... every single time.
Very good, CGagex, fish 5 is a kokanee, "Oncorynchus nerka"

Ok here is the situation. I have been fishing this river for a couple of years and have never run across this species. All the trout here are wild rainbows and browns that do not have those spots running down the side of them and they have no spots on there tails.. So I am thinking it is a sub species rainbow- red band. But why are they here. These must be the newest fry in this area, but why are they a redband?. I am stumped and have been online searching for answers for the last couple of hours. If anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated

I'd say they are rainbows, Possibly hybrid with a redband or cutty.

drstressor
09-11-2008, 07:12 PM
Those are rainbows. The jaw ends just below the eye, unlike brookies and cutts, which have mouths that extend past the eye. The big spots are parr marks that dissipate into spots as the fish matures.

I noticed u started your own thread on this question right after posting here the other day. I responded that they were rainbow parr and to search the web for parr marks. What ever happened to that thread? It disappeared shortly after. :-?

If I deleted a post it was an accident. I just started posting here so I guess I must have deleted it without realizing it. I was waiting for someone to reply while I was searching for pictures of different trout species. I wouldn’t have deleted it if someone responded to it, or if I did I didn’t mean to. I was glad to hear it was just a juvi bow. I had never caught any that small before so I was surprised to see the par marks on them. Learn something new every day. Hope that clears it up for you. That bow was actually bigger than my smallest Ling..I will give the little guy that...
