Ruby trout?

Is there really such a thing as ruby trout? The other day a big group had lunch at House of Blues in New Orleans. One of the specials was described as trout. Several people ordered it, including the person sitting across the table from me. When it arrived she was dismayed to see that it looked exactly like salmon, which she doesn't like. She offered me a bite and I thought it was pretty bland so I wasn't certain what it was, but it was the exact color of salmon.

The waiter was consulted, and the chef came out and told us that it was trout indeed, something called "ruby trout." Has anyone heard of this? Or is it a fancy new name for something else?
