I tried looking online to find out what kind of trout this is but couldn't find a definitive answer.

I haven't been able to find another trout species with the blue coloring around the gill plates. I saw a few pictures of brook trout that looked similar but I have no idea.

Thanks guys!

Pistol,
That is what I thought at first but when I Googled "brown trout" I couldn't find similar coloring on other "brown trout" pics. The other brown trout were much darker and I couldn't find any with the blue on the gill plate.

Maybe this one is an adolescent? Or farm raised?

Here is a picture zoomed in a little closer.

Which is why I came asking you fine gentlemen!
Brown trout as pistoldog said. There is variation in coloration.
