Thousands of Tiger Trout Released in Utah Waters
For many Utah anglers, the tiger trout is becoming one of the state's most sought after game fish.  They are best known for their strong fight and unusual beauty.  Tiger trout are a hybrid between a male brown trout and a female brook trout. This hybridization creates a trout with a unique, dark, maze-like pattern over its brownish gray body.  Its belly and lower fins are yellowish orange.  Because it's sterile, the tiger trout is unable to reproduce and does not pose a threat of further hybridization with other trout species.  They co-exist well with other fish species, and anglers are rapidly inquiring about how to add one of these gorgeous fish to their creel.
