Check them for clipped adipose fins. They're doing a little experiment to see how many are wild vs. how many are "wild-stocked".

Talking with the local fisheries biologist a while back, he fished a section of it and figured he caught (hook and line) 75% brookies. When they electrofished it, there were 75% browns.

I was wading through one pool and I thought I saw a wall hanger brown swim past me. Upon closer look, it was a beaver.


Very cool!


Good point. I should have checked the fins. All of them were about the exact same size too, 8-9 inches. They could be stockers. Aggressive little fish though. All of the takes were quite acrobatic.
