Wild Brook vs Stocked Brook
I was wondering the wild Brook trout in GSMNP are green with an orangish belly and red, yellow, and blue spots, while the stockers in the Clinch are Brown or Black with Yellow dots and maybe a hint of blue.
Will the stockers in the Clinch ever turn green or will they stay dark?
Also are these 2 fish the same strand of Brook Trout?
