Redband Trout are a subspecies of the Rainbow Trout. As the name suggests, these fish have a rosy red stripe along the lateral line to a brick red lateral band (especially in spawning males) with tints of yellow or orange along the ventral region. Other identification clues include large, profuse black spots over the body and fins (except pectoral), and brilliant red gill covers. The Redband Trout is similar in appearance to the Rainbow Trout, but has larger, more rounded spots and parr marks that remain into adulthood. Redband Trout that live in streams frequently have an orange cutthroat mark under their jaws.
