Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) are renowned for their attractive and colorful patterned skin and their remarkable ability to swim swiftly upstream.
Rainbow trout are opportunistic feeders that rely on a wide variety of food items ranging from small insects to crayfish. Trout inhabiting streams, rivers, lakes and ponds consume terrestrial insects, such as grasshoppers and ants, that fall into the water.
