    Re: Wild or not?

    Not a wild fish in my opinion. No red spots at all, and many of the dark spots border each other creating a bit of a chain pickerel look in a few places. I've seen that look on many stocked fish in NY state. Can't tell the condition of the pectoral fins from that picture, but the coloration says stocked fish to me.

    I would go with stocked. It looks like the pectoral fin is worn down to a nub.

    Oh jeez, LIGHTENUP, if I had thought that my experience with sbrr brown trout would add to the discussion and would be of value to you, I woulda opined.

    But given the last one I caught has been dead about 40 years...

    The wild/stocked debate does still fascinate though...

    Well, then it's time for you to go catch another one, and I really don't think much here fascinates you..
