Top Trout Colors – Top Three Thursday October 11, 2018 – Posted in: Top 3 Thursday – Tags: fly fishing, Top3Thursday
Which trout have the best coloring?
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. There are plenty of gorgeous fish out there. Still, trout stand (swim?) in a special place for fly fishers. Here are my three trout based upon colors and aesthetics. What would your top three be?
- Brook Trout Notice how the next two fish have some qualifiers? Brookies don’t need any. They win. All of them win.
- Colorado River Cutthroat Trout There are bigger and more unique cutts out there, but it is hard to beat the bright orange belly and the golden/red cheeks on these fish
- Loch Leven Brown Trout A bronze trout with a few big spots? Yes please. These browns are also great because their distinct patterns make it easy to identify individual fish.
So, what did we leave out? What are your favorite trout to look at? What would your top three look like? Let us know below!
