I believed the fingerling stocking had been discontinued. That is what had caused myself to be confused. Not hard though.

That Berks Co. bow looks awefully pale for a juvenile wild trout.

Here is one from my area, photo is also in the the fish photos section on the site.

Good one Gaeron!!! +1

Definitely looks just like the RT fingerlings that were stocked in the Donegal last year. It threw me off until I started asking questions and got edumacated about the adipose fin. On your fish, as Krayfish pointed out, lack of visible adipose fin definitely points to some type of control group.

Hey thanks for restating what has already been determined 3 days later.

Don't encourage Gaeron, I am trying to shape him into a responsible adult and do not want you corrupting him.

If you do not watch yourself, I will only take you next Friday to where these fish are and force you to catch 5 inch rainbows.

I too think wild bows are some of the hardest to distinguish. Here is another wild Berks County wild bow. Maybe a little pale in comparison to some of the brighter colors on other wild bows but this bow had more vivid tan colors on its fins scales that appear to be much smaller and more sleek, and a tannish hue on it's body. Granted small wild bows are not something I come across often in PA unless I am targeting them in specific streams so I really cannot say what really classifies as a wild bow as unique but this one really is a bit different than most others I have seen. To be honest I wish we had more of them around these parts. This little fish was one of the prettiest I have ever seen.

You got me Becker! If they are stocking some fingerling bows in your neck of the woods I would say you should have some pretty exciting fishing in the fall once those fish put on some weight. I am going to keep that in mind... I have been missing Riverwalcks!

Yes Sensei Becker. My apologies. For my indiscretion, I will wax on, wax off two times! I don't want to do anything to jeopardize an opportunity to fish with you before you replace Curtis Fleming

Riverwalcks... Hmmm.... I seem to remember ending up there last year.

They have been stocking them for years. I really can not say I have caught many bows on this stream. All those fingerlings they have stocked pretty much disappear. Browns, walleye, striper bait? No idea.

RiverWalcks is the standard after fishing beering hole. Then again, secret wing place is a standard lunch fishing stop.

Careful, dont want to spot burn your secret wing spot... I can just picture you with a bright neon shirt that reads "if you can read this your too close" with a pile of wing bones, mumbling obscenities at other customers who encroach on your space.

Only people I have ever shown this mystical place were a select few from the Pocono Newbie Jam. I will not reveal their names, so that you will not harass them for information.

If all the ones you caught were the same size my bet is that they are stocked fingerlings.
