Sholgate- Gorgeous pic... that's a Dolly Varden right?

The first, larger picture of a fish is a stocked brook trout, and the second is a wild brown. I don't believe we have any Dolly Vardens on the East Coast. I don't know much about those.

But I will say this. I have yet to be in a stream around my home without catching at least one surprise wild brown. I am amazed how they elude most fishermen.

Sholgate- Ah, you're right, should've known by your location. Haven't ever seen a Dolly Varden myself, but am always on the lookout since they're fairly scarce in most waters - supposedly no "worm-like" markings on the dorsal fin. Great photo nonetheless.
