CAN ANYONE IDENTIFY THIS FISH?

A pair of fish was circling a gravel bed just off shore where the culvert enters the lake from the pond as if they were planning to lay eggs in the gravel.  They look like they may be trout (Speckled?).  Please email Friends of Sam Smith Park if you can shed light on this.

Mark McAdam has solved the mystery ....... "They are Rainbow Trout. Any outflow (the culvert) or harbour will draw a few trout (outside of their natural river route)  during the spring spawning run. They seem to get locked into these unproductive areas where they will still try to spawn."

Thanks, Mark.
