Known formally as a golden, albino, or palameto trout. Was looking round the web and came upon this pic. Anyone ever caught, seen, or heard of one around here.

Never around here, but we used to sight fish for them in PA. They stock them out there. It was pretty cool to look down into a stream and see them just sitting there, glowing.

Never kept/ate one though. They swear they are just a rainbow variant, but I don't trust it. Kush - I thought the same thing about them when I first saw them. Three mile island and all.

I have heard/read rumors of golden trout residing in some of the high lakes/creeks in the Eagle Cap area...First I have ever seen of the albino, golden rainbow hybrid.

Someone needs to invent some fishing glasses that make all fish turn that color, even I might be able to find a steelhead then.

"Dont Eat Yellow Snow and Definitely dont eat Glowing Trout !! 2 Rules I live Bye "

Words of wisdom for sure.

Every couple of years my family travels to Utah to visit my brother. East of Salt Lake there is a little reservior that they stock with tiger trout, rainbows and these albino rainbows. They are a blast to catch. We would walk the banks looking for them, then cast a woolie bugger near them. They are super aggressive and bigger than the normal rainbows. Oh, and they taste just like a normal hatchery fish.:shock:

The only place I've seen them is at the Leaburg fish hatchery on the Mckenzie R.

yep....the ofc used to stock them in their still waters....they like fast moving baits...the osprey ate them like candy...they have a habit of lying in the shallows and that was their undoing...we caught them up to 24 inches....

Aguabonita

Species name Aguabonita (pretty water). Golden Trout or Kern River trout originated in the Kern river drainage of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in central California. They used to be exported through out the inland west and as far away as England before California passed legislation prohibiting the shipping of fish and eggs out of state. Golden trout commonly hybridize with rainbows and on occasion, with cutthroat. The world record Golden trout was an 11 pounder caught in Cook's Lake, Wyoming in 1948.The largest Golden trout are taken from remote waters at high altitudes of 10,000 feet or more. Goldens are now most common in lakes and streams in mountainous areas of the west.

Try the eagle cap..... and also fyi.... the state record is only eleven ounces, the eleven pound oregon record was a mistaken entry by fish and game. I will be taking a stab at this record in september.
