English term or phrase: sipping rainbows
Sight casting to sipping rainbows, streamer fishing for large brown trout, even fishing with big dragonflies in some of the slower reaches; these are all methods which produce fine fish in these waters.

que se alimentan
Explanation:
I think Maria Teresa is right about the rainbows being rainbow trout. And if you google 'sipping rainbows' you get quite a few hits. Many mention different things the rainbows are sipping for eg. dragonfly sipping, midge sipping. Sipping seems to be the term used for fish when they feed at the surface of the water (see 2nd web reference). Alimentarse seems to be common in Spanish: http://www.travesiadepesca.com/Pesca con Mosca/Moscas.htm

que se alimentan cerca de la superficie (o algo parecido) would probably be better! :)

Example sentence(s):
  • La trucha, está alimentándose de ninfas, cerca de la superficie.
  • En ocasiones hay que desconfiar cuando vemos la aureola que deja una trucha al subir a la superficie por su alimento
