Marked like a tiger troUt. Brook trout \brown trout hybrid. But like before mentioned the genetics of hatchery trout are far from normal. Probably justa weird rainbow.

I caught one once that had a map to the Hatchery on his flanks.  ?

Ness, I try to fish there every year as well. My folks started taking me there in the early sixties. 

The markings on this fish were like none I had ever seen - some things reminded me of rainbow, even cutthroat (gill plate and body color), but those connected spots looked like a 'reverse brookie'?!

Thought maybe someone could explain such a unique hybrid pattern. Unintended consequences of hatchery breeding?
