I dont think that this is a rainbow trout. It looks more like a brown trout. An easy way to tell them apart is the presence of spots on the upper half or the tail. Rainbow trout also have smaller and more frequent spots that are more like flecks. nice picture, nonetheless. It must have been a wonderfully clear stream
