Below are two ways to quickly identify the sex of a trout. One of best ways to distinguish the sex of a trout is to examine the mouth. Female trout all have a short rounded nose or upper jaw, while male trout have a more elongated snout. Although the mouth of a female trout will grow larger as it ages and increases in size, the mouth will never grow a kype hooked lower jaw.
Upon becoming sexually mature, male trout will begin to grow a pronounced kype.
At first, it will just be a tell-talebut as a male trout ages, its kype will become more pronounced.
