"Eye" is not part of it's name, and the eye is not really a distinguishing feature. It's neither of those fish.

Clue: you wouldn't want to eat this fish, but not because it's dangerous, because it's not.

I said it's not dangerous.

And you wouldn't want to eat this fish, so it's not salmon, or trout, however "rainbow" is part of the reason.

Not stickle back.
