Is what people are calling a Golden, just an albino or is it a true species of rainbow? GRTU stocks three times a year and gets the fish from a place in MO., and each time it will have 1-3 of these in the mix of 4,000 lbs. of fish. I call them albino's for lack of any other knowledge and think they just have a gene missing.

Whatever it is I feel extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to do battle with it. Hope it lived to excite someone else. Don't expect to ever catch another.

Poke'Em, "The golden rainbow trout originated from a single rainbow trout that was spawned in the fall of 1954 in West Virginia. This trout's body color was a chimera of golden and normally pigmented tissue. When this fish was crossed with a normally pigmented rainbow trout, the offspring (what we have come to refer to as palomino rainbow trout) were lighter in color." Taken from you link, I think that's exactly what Sandfly had said. That fish spawned in WV was the real golden rainbow.

Here's another link with more explanation. http://www.yorkccd.org/wordpress/wp-...nbow-Trout.pdf

Larry we're talking two totally different species, one entirely man made the other a true wild fish native to California and since introduced to many high country lakes throught the western states.

Osok, its just a rainbow with a manipulated coloration.

I am going to say Palomino. It does not have the red eyes and Albinos are white with no gold to them.

PALOMINO:

Maybe I misunderstood him. I thought he was saying it was a cross between a rainbow (o. mykiss hatcherius) and a golden trout (o. mykiss aguabonita) which is technically a subspecies of rainbow trout. That is not what that fish is.
