Fish Species

Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

Rainbow Trout The rainbow trout is a species of salmonid native to tributaries of the Pacific Ocean in Asia and North America as well as much of the central, western, eastern, and especially the northern portions of the United States.

Rainbow trout have a varied diet. They are predators, eating any smaller fish from nearly the time they are born. Insects make up a large portion of the diet, along with crayfish and other crustaceans, some lake dwelling species may become planktonic feeders. While in flowing waters consisting of salmon, trout will eat salmon eggs, salmon fry and even salmon carcasses. Trout of all ages will eat nearly anything they can grab.

Rainbows in the North Santiam system average 8-14", with fish reaching into the low 20's. (Note: Rainbow trout over 20" are classified as Steelhead by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife)
