Palomino Trout, 20-inches
Palomino trout hybrids are highly sought-after game fish due to their distinctive golden coloration and aggressive feeding behavior. These fish are typically found in freshwater streams, rivers, and lakes with clear, cold water and a variety of aquatic vegetation and cover. Palomino trout hybrids feed on a variety of prey, including small fish, crayfish, insects, and crustaceans, and are known to strike at a wide range of bait and lures, including live bait, flies, spinners, and spoons. These fish typically spawn in shallow, gravelly areas in the spring or early summer, and males will guard the eggs until they hatch. Overall, palomino trout hybrids are a challenging and rewarding species to target and provide anglers with a memorable fishing experience. To catch these fish, try fishing early in the morning or late in the evening when the water is cooler, and focus on areas with fast-moving water and rocky or gravelly bottoms.
