These fish are in a little pond which is used as an emergency water source for our volunteer fire department. The largest I've seen is the one pictured. Most are about 2' or 3" long. Local kids catch them with worms but I caught it using a sinking fly trailed behind a casting float. No pictures of trout I've looked up seem to match. I'm located up in Watauga County.

Creek chub, aka Eno River trout:D They need a gravel bottom to deposit their eggs in. In rivers like the Eno where there isn't enough of a gravel bottom they build cone-shaped piles of stones to spawn in. They readily take flies and put up a good fight for their size.
