I doubt it because of it's size...it did have full fins and fought well...but I know a bunch of these were stocked by Shannon's last year..I was in the KLG. The fish was approx 17 inches...maybe 16. You can see the net markings and he was bent a bit.

Nice winter treat, old boy. In addition to their exotic vermiculation, I've always thought of them as kind of otherworldly since they're also sterile.

I've caught several stocked tigers, but still no wild tigers in my 47 years fly fishing. Nice fish, LU.

Im empty in both scenarios. Hope if i hit more brookie-like water in a brown trout stream i can find a wild one. From my understanding theyll be around where brookies are dominate in a stretch where browns take place?

As the old saying goes, it only takes two to tango. So anytime you have both wild brookies and wild browns, you have a chance at wild tigers. Not sure if a preponderance of one species over the other is important or not.

Nice job!!

Im the opposite spectrum of catching tigers, all of mine have been wild. I ave caught 3 in my time if I recall. Two from a WTS and one from the KLG which was the most surprising fish of the bunch. It was only about 5-6" so definitely a wild fish.
