wild rainbow trout!!!!!!
I think that is a wild rainbow trout. Because of the orange stripe. Stocker rainbow trout generally have a purple!!

Not Native But...
Rainbows are not native to Arizona but they do reproduce in the lakes and streams.

Definitely not native... buit quite possibly "wild". At that size, they don't usually taste too great... so why not Catch & Release? Maybe give someone a chance to catch something larger than a 12" silver side.

it is wild
trout are not native to arizona but been introduced almost 100 years ago,so there everywhere now in arizona,and stocked fish from arizona are missing the front fins,az cuts them off when there young before stocked,and the orange line,some have it and some dont,but ive seen them stocked with the orange too,but you deffently caught a wild one,but wild fish dont normaly bite on power bait,only live bait,so flies,lures,worms or even grasshoppers will catch you a wild trout,they consider a trout that was stocked that makes it past the 2 year mark a wild trout too,but good catch
