rainbow trout

–Rainbow Trout,

Rainbow trout are among the most delicious of fish. They have no scales and very compact bone skeletons. Which means they are easy to clean and ready to eat in minutes. The flavor is best described as sweet to nutty and once you have it you will look forward to it again!
Rainbow trout are one of the most highly prized game fish for anglers. Their widespread availability, acrobatic fighting ability and delectable meat make them one of the most popular freshwater fish. Instead of heading for cover when hooked, as many other trout will do, rainbows will often immediately leap out of the water, then continue these leaps until they are either landed or manage to break free.
Rainbows grow to exceptional size. The life span of a rainbow may be as long as 12 years, depending on the location.
