    Nice specimen. It's interesting that the lower fins are white tipped, a feature that Tomelleri drawings in "Trout and Salmon of North America" Behnke never shows but I've noticed across Eastern Washington. Is that fish from the Descutes?

    Paul, that fish is not from the Dechustes. Small spring creek around walla walla. Alot of the Columbia Basin redbands that i have caught have white tips on their fins. Another thing is that the Stripe along the lateraly line is almost alway much more pink than red on this creek. Also most fish have small spots, these one has big ones compared to the average fish. If u head over to the south fork of the walla walla which is withing 50 miles of this creek and fleeds the same river this one does, u will noticed the fish are very differnt. They are much darker, deep red coloring and huge spots. Not sure why this is. The water on the south fork that i have fished is much colder than this spot, maybe thats it. Any ideas why the fish look so different. Both of these streams havnt been planted in 10 years or more.

    This Oregon Deschutes trout puzzled me because of the large fuzzy spots and unspotted belly and lower fins. No white tips on the lower fins on this fish.

    I have read some stuff by Benke and talked to alot of people about this. I guesss no one really knows why. Possibly that fish has a little left over cuttie in it, but thats a long shot. I have caught bows that have so many spots its hard to beleive, and i have caught some that have very few. These fish come from the same water way, so i donno what is the deal. It must be in the genetics.

    Andy, what makes this a redside as opposed to the standard rainbow? I don't know how to tell the difference.

    Redside, or redband rainbow is a subspecies of rainbow. There really is no "standard" rainbow. It is one of the two native forms of rainbow we have in our state, the other being to coastal.
