I suspect possibly more than one species. Took these photos of fish jumping at vanitys Crossing. Sorry about the image clarity.

I thought I posted this yesterday. The first and the last are rainbow trout the second one is possibly a brown trout (salmo trutta ) but is much more likely a rainbow trout.
