Western Catch

Type: Freshwater
Region: Western
Location: Bear Creek

I was wondering if this was a tiger trout I caught at Bear Creek in Friendsville, near the main street bridge? We'd like your expert opinion. If it is a tiger trout was this a mix up at the hatchery or is it possible that it occurred naturally in the wild?

DNR Response: This fish does appear to be a tiger trout or a very oddly patterned Brown Trout. It also does appear to be a hatchery-origin fish. Nice catch!
