Name This Trout
I fished the Lower Yuba this weekend and among the fish I caught was this nice 15"-17" trout. I first thought it was a salmon but after showing this picture to some anglers that evening, I was told it was definitely a trout. I looked in Native Trout of North America by Robert H. Smith and found a resemblance to the Eagle Lake trout which are only native of California. Is this a young steelhead or a hybrid?
If someone knows which species of trout this is I'd be appreciative of them letting me know.
