Definitely on the list. Even on the streams they occur naturally, they're still 1 in a thousand fish.

I'm going to get my buddy to take me to that hole next time I'm up that way.

I've never seen one of these unique fish. I'd love to though. There just aren't many places where I fish where Brookies live in numbers with browns.

Unfortunately the "cut-bow" hybrid is much less exotic.

Here are a few of the tiger trout I have caught. First two are from an alpine lake in southern Utah. Third is from a private water in Virginia.

Is that last one Rose River Farm? It looks very familiar. If so, was it worth the rod fee? I've driven by there a hundred times and thought about taking friends and family there to introduce them to fly fishing.

Wow these are some super pretty trout!!! Thanks for sharing never even heard of them until I peeked in this thread. Knowing that they are hybrid fish can they still breed to produce others?

No they are sterile.

It is a mixture of Brown and Brook trout I believe.

Found this pretty good article on them
http://www.bouldermountainguide.com/tigertrout

But nonetheless they are amazingly beautiful, I hope to catch one, one day, just so I can say I have haha

Apparently sometimes;

Tiger trout sometimes, but rarely, occur in nature when browns and brooks, which share the same autumn reproduction cycle, accidentally mix eggs and milt.
Coloration and marking most resemble brook trout; a mean set of teeth and proclivity for eating other fish stamps them as the progeny of browns.
A so-called "back cross" — female brookie and male brown — yields what commonly is termed a leopard trout, lacking the brook trout worm-like patterns and with more spots. This color pattern is considered less attractive, and the blend seldom is made.

Diamond rush, that last tiger was caught at Big Bend Farm. I would definitely say worth the rod fee.

Thanks, winxp man! And yes, they are sterile mutants.
