In the Puget Sound region of western Washington all the anadromous native char are bull trout (based on genetic sampling). The only known Dolly Varden in the area are isolated headwater populations. It is interesting in that only in western Washington (Puget Sound and the Olympic Penisula) is the bull trout anadromous.

Having said that nearly everyone still calls them Dolly Vardens, especially with a fly rod in hand.
