I would call it a rainbow. another clue would be it is running milt. Rainbows are bred now to spawn year round (the later spawning fish were started from fall steelhead stocks), so if it was close to sexually ripe it would be a rainbow.

FYI some of the rainbows in our streams have a remnent of cutt in them. This cutt was introroduced when the state was stocking fingerling wily nily throughout the trout streams 50 years ago
