Are you sure that's a triploid? I thought 'trips' didn't go through the spawning process (as that fish appears to be doing). That's why they are supposed to live longer and grow bigger and faster (no energy spent focused on trying to reproduce).
I've spoken with a guy who works for Troutlodge, and I was told that the majority of fish stocked in Rocky Ford are triploids. Here is a quote from our correspondence, "In recent years most of these fish are sterile or triploid but some may be regular trout. In February I observe redds and spawning behavior so there may be some natural reproduction in the creek."
I think your right, this fish is probably a broodstock fish and not a triploid.
Ryan, is thsi you man!
great looking Bow, I hooked several those at RF this year, very dark with good spawning colors.
Di we fished one time at Fitchner Slugh ? you fell a sleep from night before drinking!
