    Default Fish ID

    Anyone care to have a whack at identifying this sucker?

    I caught it on the Yampa River, in Steamboat Springs CO, June 2010.
    I thought it was a Rainbow, now i'm not sure

    I'm not an icthyologist, but I'm pretty sure that's a bow.

    It's all bow, it could be wild or a localized strain of a hatchery fish. I don't know if they clip fins in Co. or not so its hard to tell.

    Looks like a stocked rainbow to me.

    What did you catch it on?

    Why do you say stocked? Looks wild to me. Where I grew up stockers looked more like lake trout aka all silver with a hint of pink line.
