On the other hand the wild brown trout that inhabit our streams also have pronounced differences in color as well as spotting. These wild fish are from stocks that were brought over here from Germany in the 1800's and have noticeable differences. In a wild trout stream I fished last week I caught 3 browns within 100 yards of each other and they were all different.
This brown has a steel-gray color and dark and red spots. The dark spots are quite large, and the red spots have pronounced blue halos.
In this section of stream which is not far from where I caught the brown above I caught this one.
