Standing Indian is that high, but I think the source itself is like at 4900'. Regardless, way up there.

Most of the largest rainbows are fall/early winter spawners. Look at the fins and conditioning on that fish, though, almost certainly wild.

The best technique for a rod like this is to roll it up in the sock, put it back in the tube, and list it on Ebay for the next sucker to buy.
