This was caught in Jones Gap State Park. Apparently the waters in the are home to a good population of wild rainbows. Brook trout can only get into this area of the river through a handful of small tributaries. This little guy was super pretty and surprisingly lively on my 4wt ;) thanks for lookin!!
