I have caught plenty of bass that are colored like their surroundings, so it makes sense that a trout could do the same thing. You just don't see it as often in Rainbows since most of them are fresh from the hatchery.

Trout get those deep colors when they’ve been eating a ton of flies, fish, and crustaceans in the river. The sulfer and nitrogen in the bugs and crustaceans really darken up their colors. Thats why most of the stockers or reasonably recent stockers dont have that deep rich coloring. The pellets they’re fed in the hatchery dont have the same concentrations of nutrients that natural diet has.
