okay i was fishin the arkansas by valco and i tied into what i thought was a nice rainbow. when i beached it i was kinda confused... the markings on the upper portion were like any normal rainbow but the underside and fins were bright orange. the fins had white tips and on closer inspection i saw some of the spots resembled that of a brook trout. am i just confusing this with a cutbow? it didint have the red slashes tho. i have caught rainbows and cutbows in that same spot but not like this.

genetically impossible.

Hmm, a report on 9lb Smallies in Valco in another post, one about finally eating the last of the bass in your freezer, and now a brookie/bow hybrid post.....

And all on your first day here.

Im beginning to think something else is in the water

From wha I have read, the Colo. D.O.W. imported a new type of trout, called the Hofer, from Germany in 2006 to combat whirling desease and crossed them with wild river trout and a trout from a lake in Montana. Go on to the Colorado D.O.W. website and there are a few articles about the trout.

It was a colorfull brown trout. A brook and a rainbow cannot be cross bread. A brook trout is a char, and a raindow is a salmonid. Brook trout are not trout, niether is a lake trout a trout. they are char.

the "new trout" is a German hatchery bred rainbow. that is all. now maybe we will have to endure net draggers
talking about all the "German rainbows" they are catching, in addition to the "German browns", there being nothing very "German" about either one.
