I'm with s&s on this one, the big eye on the thing caught my eye too. In addition to what Greg said about the white stripe, another indicator of the possibility of it being wild is the pristine state of the fish's fins. The fins of stockers get beat up from being packed in with all their brothers and sisters competing for little chunks of food falling from the heavens (aka their pellet hoppers). I don't know if they clip adipose fins on the stockers see in that part of the country, but that is a dead giveaway for stocked fish where they do it.
