Is this a tiger trout?

I caught this uniquely colored brown (?) today on a black ghost streamer. I catch quite a few browns in this stream that also have the tiger stripe/ worm markings. Just looking for some clarification as it's definitely not your typical brown.

I really didn't think it was a tiger myself but I figured I'd ask. Still looking to cross that one off my list. lol

Yep, that's a tiger. I've come across two types of tigers, ones that favor the brown trout and ones that favor the brookie. Yours clearly favors the brown.

Here's one that definately favors a brookie.



And here's one that favors a brown.

Id disagree, your tiger that favors the brown has a much more obvious tiger pattern of vermiculations on its side then his does.

Tough call. I'd give 3-2 odds that it was, but I certainly wouldn't bet my life on it.

A tiger whether in th wild or hatchery will have the fins of a brook trout, if not then its a plain old brown . There are several species of brown, the most common is the german brown, the others are from scotland, ireland, etc.

That sure looks like a brown trout to me. It does have unique markings though. Even if it was a tiger, it would be a stocker because wild tigers don't get that big in Pa.

Look again at the pelvic fins on the fish in picture (the fins under the pinky). They're one of the reasons I think it could be a tiger.

Then look at the tiger in the picture (which clearly is a tiger) on this link:

Tiger from Gunpowder Falls

You'll notice that the pectorals are not particularly brookie like.


There is only one species of brown trout, Salmo trutta. There are some subspecies (sea trout, Caspian salmon, marbled trout, etc, none of which are in this country.) The Loch Levan strain (whence most of the trout here) and the "German" strains are the same subspecies, although markings do vary somewhat depending on the ancestral region. (Much as there's only one species of dog -- certainly there's a lot of variation possible.)

The brown trout has all spots.
The brook trout has spots on the bottom half with the top half having squiggly or wormlike markings from head to tail.
The tiger trout has all squiggly or wormlike markings from head to tail.
