Default What is the best looking trout?

Just an opinion question...thought it would be fun. Ill be the first with the Brookie... I like them for their beauty, the wild places they inhabit and their love of the dry fly!

That's a hard one. I love the colors of the brook trout, the places cutthroat live in and the buttery brown trout.

I would have to chose the cutthroat. I love the color of a male westslope cutthroat caught out of a mountain lake after a five hour hike. Nothing beats it in my opinion, except maybe a big brown or rainbow...

Mint chromer. My vote goes for fresh from the ocean sea run rainbow trout.

Tough choice, they all look amazing, but if I had to pick one I'd say a Brook or Cutthroat.

I'd also love to see a Tiger trout in person, but have yet to be able to see one, going off pictures those things can be pretty amazing looking to.

Hi Coop,

I've never caught a trout I didn't think was a beautiful fish but I grew up with Brook Trout and there's an old saying, whether it sounds corny or not that goes, 'When at the dance, dance with the one that brought ya'. So.........I do find that a Brook Trout is perhaps the most colorful of them all and the most willing to grace a fisherman be that person new to the game or a veteran of the sport.

A nice little AK. Rainbow may well be runner up for being pretty.

Hmmm, I may be biased, but brook trout are hard to beat. My first trout was a rainbow, but brookies are my favorite for their beauty. Goldens are close, but I've never caught one. Brookies though......

The most beautiful trout is the one at the end of your line!
