Default Just For Fun, Who Can....

Identify these three fish? Remember this is just for fun, not to cause an argument!

I see alot of discussion on threads over identifying/misidentifying fish species and I admit to being one of those who chimes in on those threads as well. These three fish are from two different bodies of water. All were caught in May 2012 and originate from the same hatchery. The fish in bottom of the boat was about 4 pounds and I caught it on a 6wt fly rod using a bead-headed leech pattern. The other one where I am in a blue t-shirt was caught about 3 days previous on the same lake. That fish was around two pounds and caught while casting a 1/4 oz Blue Fox pixee in gold/orange. The third where I am holding it wearing a camo coat is about a 4 pounder as well and was caught while trolling a clouser minnow style streamer about 5" long in a perch colour on a wf6s line.(I know BLASPHEMY! ) The flesh on these fish is as deep red as a sockeye salmon and absolutely delicious.
Ok go.....
