Default South Boulder Creek, what is this?

I hiked the Walker Ranch Loop just west of Boulder on March 16th and 18th. I also fished South Boulder Creek for a couple of hours both days and ran into a great midge hatch and the browns and rainbows were rising everywhere. I am not an experienced fly fisherman so I don't know the names of the flies I used, but I used two. Both were drys. One looked like a mosquito (black) and the other looked just like a few midge bugs I caught bouncing around on the water (gray). I incl a picture of it.

I caught one nice Brown, but mostly I just hooked into smaller Rainbows. All of the Rainbows I caught looked like the one in the pictures. Is this a cutbow? All Rainbows I've caught in the past always had silver sides. This Rainbow almost looks like a Cutthroat with a red stripe running down the side. What kind of trout is this exactly?
