Golden Trout

The California golden trout, or simply the golden trout, is a subspecies of the rainbow trout native to California. The golden trout is native to Golden Trout Creek, Volcano Creek (tributary to Golden Trout Creek), and the South Fork Kern River.

The California golden trout is closely related to two other rainbow trout subspecies. The Little Kern golden trout, found in the Little Kern River basin, and the Kern River rainbow trout, found in theKern River system. Together, these three trout form what is sometimes referred to as the "golden trout complex".
