I simply ID it as a "trout".. With all that has gone on over the years with inbreeding/crossbreeding you have to know there will be mutatations so why not this one.. Call it what you want, it's a trout and a product of human intervention.. Personally, I would be more than happy to hook, fight and land it as well...

With the new pic, and the background, I'm going to amend my previous call and say it's a brown.

I'm still not "certain" by any stretch of the imagination, other than that it's stocked.

I'm going to say Tiger, even though PFBC may not stock tigers in Clarks, some club may.

Brown. The spots on the head and the 'stripe' pattern that has, thus far, been attributed to browns AND tigers, leads me to believe it's another funky brown (which Clarks is known for).

If it's a tiger, it's an ugly tiger (and since not wild, not likely either), and if it's a brown it's a really pretty brown. Great fish!

You know after thinking about this and the basic identity difference between brook trout (light spots on a dark background)and brown trout[EDIT] (Dark spots on a light background)[edit] its clear that the background is light and the spots are dark. I reviewed all the tiger trout pics on the site in the photo section and the vermiculations seem to lean in that direction too.

So I change my vote to weird brown spotting due to the inbreeding of hatchery fish. Also in the other thread of "ugly clarks stockers" there are clear black spots on the gill plate and red spots that do not appear on true tigers.

These "is this a tiger?" threads pop up here every year and until this photo I've always been confident at a glance in telling the difference. This is the toughest one yet.


This is the first one that had me scratch my head at all.

But this has always held true. Brown.

Dan,

It took your quote of my post to have me realize I made the distinction with no difference. I fixed it above.

You know after thinking about this and the basic identity difference between brook trout (light spots on a dark background)and brown trout (Dark spots on a light background)...

I can't believe no one pointed it out.

Well thanks for clearing up that female's are usually moms and males are usually dads. Lol
