Default Batcave-Chimney Rock-fish ID?

Fished this area of NC this weekend. I assumed the last fish is a brown but wanted help from forum to confirm? Doesn’t really match the typical ID for rainbow with no strip or brown since no red on spots...thanks!

If you were fishing the Rocky Broad River, that would be a stocker brown trout.

That river gets heavily stocked

Stockers tend to have much duller colors due to the food intake not being natural. IF that fish sticks around and gets some 'local fare' in it in a year or so it might look more colorful.

Even wild fish "wash out" in stained water. That's definitely a stocked fish, don't get me wrong.

Absolutely agree Dylar. The biggest difference I’ve noticed is that when wild fish ‘wash out’ they tend to still have colors and spots just very subdued at most. Stockers colors are just dull and lifeless. Ironically kinda like the difference between homegrown vs store bought maters.
