The last few rainbows that I have kept and eaten have different color meat.....Some pink,some white. Does anyone know why or what causes this? (And yes they were cooked thoroughly)I was thinkin about it and only thing that came to me was that maybe some of them (either one either way) were stockers and some were not but that doesnt make any sense to me because the places ive been lately are not the type of lakes or locations to have natural fish there, if ya know what I mean.......All these lakes are that ive been tohave to be stockers and stockers only as far as rainbows go.....I dont know....... What do you guys think??????

Yea awesome ePiC I did notice that the pink (which I just ate) did taste alot better then the white mushy I had a month or so ago. The white mushy ones I got from Arvada Res. The one I ate tonight was from Chatfield which work2fish caught today. We tried to save the little bugger but she jacked herself up pretty good and didnt make it but she was good!! She actually wasnt a bad sized fish I measured her when I got home and it was a little over 14 inches and pretty healthy lookin.It made up 2 nice fillets and was the best rainbow ive eaten in while.
yea def great answers thanks alot guys been wandering about that for a little while now...
