Redband Trout are a subspecies of Rainbow Trout. Redbands are typically found in high desert rivers of Oregon, Washington, Montana, California, and Nevada. A somewhat anomalous population of Redbands exists in the McKenzie River of Oregon, which is now a tributary of the Willamette, but was historically a tributary of the Deschutes. Redbands are often more brightly colored than their coastal kin and can tolerate higher water temperatures. Redbands also have an increased resistance to C. shasta compared to coastal Rainbows, which was likely selected for by the warmer temperatures of the rivers in which they are found.
