These Lightning Trout were a portion of a 2000 + pound stocking of Lake Hemet that also included plenty of trophy fish in the 3-8 pound range. For those unfamiliar with Lightning Trout … these Rainbow Trout are golden in color with a bright red stripe down their sides and a bright red gill plate. They look like neon lights shooting through the water and their meat resembles that of a salmon. They are truly a beautiful, great fighting and great eating trout.
