Their orange color resembles a rainbow. Because they are hearty eaters, they are fun to catch and good to eat."

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"Rainbow trout is best if cooked straightaway out of the water, eh wot? There are many recipes for this marvelous fish, too many to count! Sauteed trout almondine is a traditional preparation, for example. You can just tell by the name of that dish that it's pricey, can't you?"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"Did you know the most popular bait used for rainbow-trout fishing is a few salmon eggs? Rather horrific when you remember that rainbow trout and salmon are related... Blech."

[edit] Real Life

The Rainbow Trout is a very common fish that lives in the Pacific Ocean between Asia and North America. The only country that rainbow trout are not introduced to is Antarctica. Sometimes these fish have had negative effects such as eating out other fish or spreading diseases. These trout return to their hatching ground to spawn. Rainbow trout can live to be eleven years old. They eat anything that they can get and eat it. Because this fish is so popular, its numbers have been decreasing because of people hunting them and natural causes. They can also easily obtain a disease called enteric redmouth disease, that effects them but not humans.
