Nice fish. I may be wrong, but that looks like a wild brook to me, parr marks and all. There are natives found in some of the Oconaluftee's feeders on upstream. I have caught quite a few above Kephardt, which would actually be Beech Flats at that point.

Regardless, those stocked fish do run pretty far some times. I have caught a few in wild Pisgah waters 5 or miles from any stocked water.

Now I am itching to get up there. I still have a score to settle with the monster brown I hooked in October 2010. After a 5 minute fight, he broke the hook off my nymph. I got a few good looks at him, he was a buttery golden football shaped creature.
