These fish are named for their tiger-like stripes and aggressive attitudes.
Features: Tiger trout are a hybrid between a female brown trout and a male brook trout. They are greenish yellow to brown with dark patches along their sides creating a maze-like pattern. Their belly is yellowish orange and the tail fin is square.
Habitat: These sterile fish have been introduced to Diamond and Fish lakes to help combat several invasive bait fish species. Since they do not reproduce, tiger trout are catch-and-release only.
Techniques: Tiger trout will go for flies, spoons, spinners and bait. Because tiger trout are piscivorous (they eat other fish), fishing a minnow imitation can be effective.
