this rainbow was about 15" and had a few battle scars. never caught a rainbow like this in southeast PA, especially in Pickering. It was a greenish color with a ton of spots. If someone wants to post it, PM me and i'll email it to you.

jeff, I think you can post pictures directly to your message and it will upload to the server and display in your post. Look down the bottom at the "Attach File" dialogue section. There is a total kilobyte limit of 1000 (1MB), so you may need to shrink it first. Just select "browse" and you can pick the image file off of your hard-drive and attached it to the post and it will show as below.

Here, I'll test it out:

After posting that brookie you should know why he found this rainbow interesting. Its a very nicely colored rainbow for here in PA. Most rainbows here have that bluish-purple hatchery color that makes them extremely ugly. Even your brookie is pale in comparison to the rainbow he posted. I am surprised when I catch the occasionally well colored rainbow. Usually its one from the north carolina hatcheries (where they are raised in a spring not a concrete runway) not from PA. I see his creek is stocked by a pa hatchery so its not the case... but aside from the crowds, the other thing I dislike about opening day is that all the trout look alike. BLUE.

Chaz,
Do you catch a lot of wild brookies with that silverish tone? I thought that only the stockies had that kind of coloration, but maybe there's a different and less common strain of wild ones of that color? Or maybe it's just the lighting of the picture?

I'm just guessing because I know very little abut Chaz's fish but If I had to guess I'd say he was either hanging out in deeper water or it was winter and his diet was a little off.

Tom,
the one thing that also looked different to me was the mouth. To me it didn't look like a normal rainbow mouth, i was longer and less rounded, the bottom lip was also starting to curl up. just thought i'd post it cause it's very unusual for this stocked stream. was happy to see quite a few fish there.

The rainbow’s coloration is a lot like the stocked rainbow fingerlings in the Tully that have been there for a while. Also the rainbows stocked in the Little Lehigh have the same look. The greenish coloration may be a function of how long the stocked fish hold over in the stream. Most stockies seem to lose the pale bluish silver coloration after time.

The rainbows in the hatchery at the privately owned Little Lehigh have nice coloration. I don’t know why PFBC hatchery fish are so pale. Diet?

I don't fish Pickering that often, but one of the last times I was there I caught a very healthy and nice looking brown that I assumed was a holdover. Maybe Pickering has a decent population of holdovers?
