Trout is the common name for a number of species of freshwater fish belonging to the genera Oncorhynchus, Salmo and Salvelinus, all of the subfamily Salmoninae of the family Salmonidae. The word trout is also used as part of the name of some non-salmonid fish such as Cynoscion nebulosus, the spotted seatrout or speckled trout.
Trout are closely related to salmon and char (or charr): species termed salmon and char occur in the same genera as do trout (Oncorhynchus - Pacific salmon and trout, Salmo - Atlantic salmon and various trout, Salvelinus - char and trout).
Most trout such as lake trout live in freshwater lakes and/or rivers exclusively, while there are others such as the rainbow trout which may either live out their lives in fresh water, or spend two or three years at sea before returning to fresh water to spawn, a habit more typical of salmon. A rainbow trout that spends time in the ocean is called a steelhead. Arctic char and brook trout are part of the char family.
Trout are an important food source for humans and wildlife including brown bears, birds of prey such as eagles, and other animals. They are classified as oily fish.

I've been meaning to get more into fly fishing for almost 20 years. Finally decided that this is the year! Here is my first trout, about a 15 inch rainbow. Who else has pics of their first fly rod catch (doesn't have to be trout)?
Up for sale are a couple of wood carvings from our beach home.
$40 for the trout - at least it looks like a trout to me. It’s about 26” to 28” long.
$80 for the razor clam. About 32” tall.
Both have always been indoors.
Anybody ever fish the Owyhee? I am planning on making a trip this summer and hear there is some great brown trout fishing. How is access to the river? From all accounts Ive read, its one of Oregon's best kept secrets.
