An 18" white trout?!? Never ever seen or heard of one that big. That's awesome, stud fish for sure.

& I second that it looks like a lookdown.

We catch quite a few that big in the winter. Most of the 7 he and my youngest caught were 14-15" but this one just at 18" and 2+ lbs

I'm not sure about this being a look down. The eyes of the look down in the pic are too far from the mouth for the OP's fish to be a look down IMHO.

According to good ole google, this is a juvi lookdown. Eyes look alot smaller than the ones that came from the trout? But body shape looks correct. Guess I just need to get out there and catch more for comparison!!!
