 A New Breed..The Lightning Trout...

At Mt. Lassen a hatchery worker discovered a male rainbow trout with vertical stripes and golden appearance. Apparently, according to the scientists, a recessive gene became dominant in this individual and produced the golden hue.

They bred the male with hundreds of normal female rainbows hoping that one or more of the females also possessed the same recessive gene for the golden appearance.

They got lucky and found a few of these females with the gene.
Approximately 25% of their total offspring showed the golden coloration of the new trout. They were separated and selectively bred with one to the other.

After several generations of selective breeding all of the offspring are 100percent golden in color.....

The Lightning Trout is born.
