I recently moved to MN from PA and have never heard talk of Loopers before. What exactly are Loopers? Are they a rainbow, a steelhead, a lake trout, a salmon; or a slight variation of one of the mentioned? What are their main characteristics for identification, and is there a unique way of fishing for them compared to related species?

Thanks Northlander, it is a great string of posts, great information on productive tactics. Down to the first part of the question; what is a looper? Is it just a second name (slang) or a specific species subclass?

looper is a shortened version of the name kamloops which refers to a different strain of the rainbow trout species that comes from British Columbia. It is different than our local steelhead in that it can't reproduce and is not really suited for these colder water temps. If you catch both of them you can really tell the diffenece but about them being different species that is not the case. Hope this clears it up for ya.

keep fishin'
