Classification:

Rainbow Trout, (Oncorhynchus mykiss), do not have specific color markings on their bodies that can be used to identify them like the Bonneville Cutthroat Trout. Each Rainbow Trout has his or her own individual markings. But commonly among all Rainbow trout, during the time of reproduction (spring), a red or pink stripe on their body appears.
