These are all wild trout from some local streams I fished with my buddy Brad Goodrich over the past couple weeks. All catch and release- wild trout are to precious and pretty.
The 15" brown trout probably was released as a fingerling by students participating in Trout Unlimited's Trout in the Classroom program with the Little Stony Creek TU chapter. It was probably put into the stream 3-4 years ago.
The brook trout were stocked by TU and the rainbow's are in a secret creek I found out about from TU- in an area they have quietly tried to protect.

Dull hooks are like dull people-they're worthless on a fishing trip.

Damn good report and some really great small stream fish. Good flicks too

The brown looks stream born to me and some of the bows are stream born or released as fingerlings

The last throw I made with a Zug Bug was into the trash can.
