I was in central Colorado fishing a small stream in the Rio Grande drainage. I was about 10000 feet and stalking cutthroats when I caught this little guy. He was dark sparkly green on his back and pure white on his belly with two rows of light yellow spots down his side. He had a slight indent on his tail and maybe a shorter nose than the cutts. I attached all of the pictures I took before I released him.

So, I had responded "They're fish!" and received a PM from the moderator and had my post deleted, but other people can make wild claims of what they are and no righteous indignation from the moderator? Outstanding! I guess a Patriots fan's humor isn't appreciated around these parts ;)

Jim, I wouldn't think they would let Splake in the river with the Cutttie recovery program down there. I know there are Brookies there but never heard of any Splake there.

Once upon a time in the Rio Grande, there was a spill of Splake from one of the reservoirs. It's been a while, but seems like that is what they looked like.

Splake don't normally reproduce in the wild, and that one looks like it was born recently. I think it's just a brook trout with subdued markings and coloration.
