The Museum

The Rainbow Trout can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"When rainbow trout get bigger, they develop a pretty pink band from their gills to their tails. Some of them spend their entire lives in rivers, while others live in the ocean. Steelhead trout are a unique type of rainbow trout that live in the ocean and return to freshwater to spawn. Rainbow trout are a major species of fish, but finding them in the wild is actually fairly rare."


Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:

"I caught a rainbow trout! That's what I'm talking about!"
