That is very cool. Tell us more. Does palomino mean albino I guess?

I am not sure whether this is a natural occurance, or one stocked by a fish hatchery, but I do know that Utah used to stock albino brown trout in streams. Either way, cool trophy.

I thought it was an albino at first, but several local folks thought palomino or palomino rainbow. Other palomino photos on the internet look the most similar. Very pale 'rainbow' stripe down the flank, and a rainbow or redder cheek. Otherwise the whole fish was bright tangerine yellow. He swatted at my streamer several times before I got the hook up, he seemed very aggressive or just plain hungry.
Golden trout (as seen on the internet), have a much darker back, dark spots, and vertical bars on the flank. Although some sources show Goldens as very pale or plain yellow. There seems to be a distinction between Golden Trout and Golden Rainbow as well... One could probably find fish to fill all parts of the spectrum though!
So... still not exactly sure on species, but pretty sure it is a Palomino Rainbow, or a golden rainbow (whatever one wants to call it). Basically another O. mykiss that was bred for its colors.
Whatever it was, it made my day!

Palomino and Albino are two different trout. Albino, like other species with that label, are snow white and red eyes

That is a nice Palomino though. I have caught one and he was a bit beat up, but fun on bamboo
