Yes, The way I like to identify individual Brown trout is the spot pattern. Look at the spot pattern on the gill plate on the first picture. There are four spots if I remember correct in an unusual alignment. I believe it was the second one down that was darker and more pronounced.

Yes. No. Can I get a maybe?

I thought it was. I showed the pictures to someone else this morning and he didn't think so.

Not on the gill cover. Just behind the eye. That fish has some very easily identifying spots there.

Yes, it is, no question. +1 to what Steno said. The coloration of an individual fish can change pretty quickly, but the spot placement and pattern is constant. The two arcs of 3 and 4 spots respectively behind the eye is the giveaway and easiest to compare on this one IMO since it has lots of spots on its flank.

If not the same, an identical twin. That said, my money is on same.

And by the way, score another for catch-and-release.

Yes, same fish. I agree with Steno and Swattie, the spots by the eye are the same.

Same Fish. I've caught many fish several times. It is really interesting to see fish re-caught after several years. One brown I photographed in 2009 at 18.5" (Letort)...was caught in the Conodoguinet many miles downstream at 24" in 2012. Additionally, it was caught in June!

Yes, same fish. There are multiple areas where the spot patterns are identical, even the same markings on fins.
