I caught this fish where there is definatley the possibility of natural reproduction. It looks way nicer than most of the stockies I've caught there. I'm thinking holdover? Anybody think its wild? Just a good looking stocky? I'm afraid if I tell you where I caught it, it will influence your decision. I'll just say that its a limestoner that has wilds and is also stocked. Oh, it cant be spot burned as its already on fire.

Sure looks pretty, those colors are gorgeous. I'd say wild but then again, I'm certainly no expert and that is just my gut talking. I did have jalapenos tonight, so that could also be doing the talking.

Great coloration, but only fair fins at best. Gonna lean stocker/holdover on this one.

What makes you so sure? I'm not saying you are wrong but you seem so sure I was wondering what indicates that to you? I know on browns you can use the red on the adipose fin but what are you using on a bow?

the nubs that are the pec fins

and the mushy coloration
wild fish have "nice" coloration... this fish does not

and that he said he got it from a stream that is stocked

I suck at rainbows, so I don't trust my judgements on coloration and spot patterns. But those fins look pretty worn.

I'd vote stockie but it's a mighty nice one. Maybe a holdover?

I suck at rainbows too. I thought this might be a learning experience for me. I kind of thought stocker too because of the worn fins. That being said, the fins were pointy and had the white tips that I am not used to seeing on stockies. Also, the red/pink coloring was way more vivid than the other obvious stockers I caught that day.

Rouch edges on the fins = stocked, colors off= stocked.
