Color Variation

One thing that we have not yet discussed is that trout have an amazing ability to change the color of their body to blend in with the environment, which serves as a camouflage for protection and safety. In fact, this is a unique skill since the trout can change to different colors or patterns to match just about any background. For this reason, you need to have keen eyes and the ability to look through the water and the environment to notice subtle changes.

Keep in mind that this camouflage is best when the fish is lying still. Once it begins to move, the degree of camouflage is not quite as effective. This is exactly why the trout will become very still whenever it senses danger approaching and will remain in that position until the danger is no longer present.
