Wildlife Express: Redband trout are Idaho’s native resident rainbow

Redband trout are found in a variety of stream habitats in Idaho, from some of the warmest streams in the Owyhee desert, to the smallest mountain streams in remote alpine settings of central and northern Idaho.

This month’s Wildlife Express will have anglers itching to catch these native gems known for their fighting and jumping abilities once they’re hooked.
