Its skin is covered with small irregular red spots against a silvery-white background.

During spawning time, its whole body becomes red, and its dorsal and pectoral fins acquire a rainbow-like luster.

It usually feeds on the larvae of insects in water and small fish.

In Korea, Manchurian trout are found in the Amnokgang, Dumangang, Cheongcheongang, Daedonggang, and Hangang Rivers and in the upper reaches of the Nakdonggang River.
