Default fish id....

When I originally caught it I assumed it was a baby brookie or cutthroat and didn't look at it very close. What is it? The dark vertical bars are throwing me for a loop when comparing it to other pictures I can find for reference. I'm sure this is an easy question for you natives....

That's a baby Brookie, unless that's a fork in the tail. Was the tail straight across? If forked, it could be a juvenile splake.

Can't see the pic too well but it looks like a Brook. Look at the anal fin...

Can't see the pic real well. Brookie or splake, coloring on the fins like Longdraw says points that way. Looks like a forked tail.

Question is what river did you get it out of? If its is the Blue upper or lower at Dillion it could be a Artic Char. If not its a brookie.

It came out of a tributary of the Blue River....the lower part of the Swan River this last summer... What do you think?

Here's some info on the Swan River. My guess again Juvenile Brookie.

Located off of Tiger Rd. in the beautiful Swan River Valley, about 3 miles north of Breckenridge, you'll find the Swan River. The Swan River provides good casting on numerous beaver ponds for small, feisty, mountain brook trout. The Swan begins in the North Fork of the valley an flows approximatly 9 miles to the confluence of the Blue River.
