Native Trout Question
Posted 30 October 2012 - 08:10 PM
Any sources anybody has would be great but specifically I am looking for some general input on the ease of catch of the types of trout. I have heard before that cutthroats are the hardest to reel in followed by rainbows and browns.
Do you think this is true? Do you think it effects catch rates of species? I'm not really an avid fisherman so I couldn't say.

Also would you say browns are hard to hook or put up more of a fight taking in?

Trout: a salmonoid from the genus salmo, oncorhynchus, or savelinus
Salmon: A large trout species whose sea run form is the majority of the population.

brown trout are easier to find, because they can handle warmer water, they are also more likely to take minnows and worms, they are bullish on a line, rainbows are rarer, not particular about bait, and very fast and likely to become airborne, native brookies are smaller, timid and particular about what they eat, not hard to land if you manage to hook them. there are others also pretty popular such as lake trout , steelhead, goldens, and comparisons have to be between local populations creek to creek , lake to lake etc.
Aren't steelheads the same as rainbows, only migratory populations.

It all really depends on presentation, luck, and patience.

From easiest to toughest of the commonly sought after "trouts": Brook, Cutthroat, Rainbow, Brown.
I would second Matt's opinion. Both brook and cutthroat trout are extremely opportunistic as they're usually found in streams in which food is less abundant (nutrient poor). Brown trout seem to be notoriously difficult to catch, and feed nocturnally in many systems.
