trout ID?

Post by Ongsono » Mon Jul 24, 2017 3:18 pm

Hey guys,

I'm having trouble identifying this trout. My guess is that its a discoloured brown.
Caught it last weekend at Lake Eildon, measuring in at 43cm.

Cheers.

Looks like an Atlantic Salmon mate. :thumbsup:

I'm going to call it for an Atlantic Salmon too. Mainly due to the tail shape and the indistinct shaped spots on the back. End of the top jaw in relation to the eye is also another indicator although hard to tell from the photo.
