Thanks for sharing and for the photos. I would point out that almost certainly one of the browns (the first one pictured which, if I read the post right, your friend caught) is not a wild fish. Compare the coloration and placement of the red spots on it and the brown shown later and you will readily notice a marked difference. Also, the fins are suggestive, but in my experience you can always tell a wild trout. I don't know what changes the placement and nature of the red spots, but it happens.
As for the first brown pictured, I suspect it is a trout stocked in Reservation waters which made its way upstream.
Beyond that, a slam is a slam, whether the speck was four inches or a foot. Congratulations, and what particularly pleases me is having the young lady involved. Nothing quite matches passing it on.
