All below trout are from midwestern small streams.
Can you name all of them?

Yes, but then I had your help. Hehehehe.

Any who, the so called "tiger" trout is interesting since it's a hybrid "native" to Eastern Europe. According to Silvio Calabi in Trout & Salmon Of The World; the "tiger" trout is a cross between a subspecies of the Brook trout and a Brown.

That one would've been a real stumper for me and would've guessed an "albino" Brookie, up until this morning I'd never heard of a "tiger" trout....had to look it up in the afore mentioned book.

Eventually, all things merge into one...and a river runs through it.

Way, way cool. I especially loved the color and pattern variation in the Browns, some of which I believe was due to age and/or size as well as diet and genes. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission actually stocks Tiger Trout sometimes, creating the hybrid in their fish labs. Once in a blue moon natives in streams with brooks and browns will produce hybrid Tigers too, but this is very rare.

Hey Guy's-
Click on Len's Profile then click on his Homepage. Some fantastic pictures on PhotoBucket.

Len-
I haven't been down to that part of the state but I do have a good friend in Viroqua. From the looks of it I'm missing out on some excellent fishing.

When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."

Beautiful photos in that article on wild tigers. I've only caught a few tigers, and they were stocked. One run of the Tulpehocken had a tiger trout that I caught twice in one season. Thanks for sharing the photos and the article.

You mean he fell for both the CDC and the DCD? That's some bipolar fish.

Many years ago on the upper Mongaup, near the Debruce fish hatchery, I saw a nice brown of about 15" on a redd and a brook trout of about 13" seemed to be enamored by the brown trout and I watched them cavort for over half an hour before I left.
