What Do Trout See?

Postby Karl Klavon » Thu Mar 28, 2019 6:03 am

I recently put up some videos about fish vision and what colors catch fish. In the first one, it was stated that Large Mouth Bass have only two color cone cells - red and green. Which caused me to wonder how many cone cells Trout have? Turns out they have four; humans have only three - red, blue and green. Trout have Ultra Violet Light sensitive vision cells which we lack. Here is a very good and informative article on what and how trout see, including the angling applications I believe we are all interested in:
