Decorative Fish Ornaments for Christmas and Everyday

This page showcases a variety of freshwater fish and fishing-related ornaments, including Christmas ornaments as well as examples of fish artwork that are suitable for everyday display.

Freshwater fish ornaments depict anglers' favorite species from around the world.

Other ornaments help anglers to celebrate and remember their favorite sport. Fishing ornaments cover specialties such as fly fishing, bass fishing, rods, reels, tackle and other fishing-related subjects.

Trout, Salmon, and Char

Members of the trout, salmon, and char family of fish (Salmonidae) are among the most iconic of all North American fish. Some members live their entire lives in freshwater while others spend part of their lives in saltwater environments.

The brook trout, also known as brookie or squaretail, is the only trout that is native to the eastern USA. Brook trout can be distinguished from other species by their squarish tails, white lower jaw, and white or pink spots.


The sockeye salmon is perhaps the most beautiful species of Pacific salmon. Upon maturing in fresh water, the bodies of sockeye salmon turn brilliant red, contrasted olive-green on the head, upper jaw, fins, and tail. Breeding males develop a humped back and hooked jaws.

Arctic Char


The Arctic char is found in both freshwater and saltwater in lakes and coastal waters of the northern hemisphere. Other names for this brilliantly colored char include iqaluk and tariungmiutaq. In eastern countries, its name is spelled charr.
