Set B7 - Freshwater Fish - card information

28. Trout Parr
(Salmo trutta)

28. Trout Parr

The young Trout and Salmon are similar: they are 3 to 4 inches long, spotted in various colours, and have a row of dark marks on their sides ('Sooty Fingers'). But the Trout parr has more coloured spots, a larger mouth, and pectoral fins pale orange, while the Salmon parr has three dark spots behind the eye (not found in the Trout) on the gill cover, and darkish pectoral fins. The parr of both species snatch at any fly or bait: anglers should take care to unhook and return them to the water.
