Golden Trout oncorhynchus mykiss aguabonita

The Golden Trout is California's State Fish and has been given the nickname of, "Fish from Heaven". Although very small in size, the Golden Trout are not just beautiful but tasty. This trout is fun to catch in that they are excellent at camouflaging their body in the shadows. One minute it will appear dark and then seconds later, turn into a beaming gold and red color.

This trout species is one of just a few fish species that are native to the southern Sierra Nevada. While it takes a lot of Golden Trout to make a meal, they are an interesting fish that has a ton of personality.
