Status & Trends by Species

Rainbow Trout


© E.R. Keeley

Rainbow Trout is a resident fish species, and has been named as a focal species by subbasin planners in 10 subbasins. Status and trends data are available for this species in 2 subbasins. Snapshot data are available in 1 subbasin. 7 subbasins have no data available. Rainbow Trout is not a Federally protected species, though it is listed as a "species of concern" in 7 subbasins. No biological objectives have been set for this focal species in the Columbia River Basin.

Rainbow trout are the same species as steelhead, but have a resident life history rather than anadromous. Rainbow trout typically live in fast-running clean streams and deep lakes with high levels of dissolved oxygen. They spawn in late winter and spring.

Focal species represent the fish species that the subbasin planners have identified as focal species for the respective subbasin. The biological objectives associated with a focal species were either described in the subbasin plan or were included in state, tribal, or federal recovery/management plans. Biological objectives and current status are linked to their respective reference information; if the reference exists on-line, a link is provided to the original data.

The status and trend information represents the most current data that is available. Data were collected through interviews with biologists and reviews of reports and websites. Each chart is linked to a table of the data, and each datapoint in that table is linked to reference information. The focal species data presented have been reviewed and approved by the respective collectors.
