From my understanding,

- it is not an ex brood stock fish
- they dont stock that area, so its a self sustaining population.

Im sure the others have more inputs.

Thats a great rainbow out of a stream that size! I love rainbows for their aerial antics.

Well done.

Great fish!
Size wise it looks like one of the recent stockings but it doesn't have the clipped adipose fin you usually see on those fish.
