Regardless of the strain, a freshly stocked brookie is always going to be less colorful than a wild one. It is just like any other fish. All of the stocked brookies I have caught have been fairly ugly in my opinion and didn't enjoy seeing them that way, even if they were bigger than the ones usually caught in small wild streams. I have caught some that looked to be holdovers and like the other trout, they tend to look more natural but still noticeably different.
