Talking A real rod bender - wild or stocked?

Well I guess I have to break one personal record every year. Following a retrieve I noticed a little "slime" hanging off of one of my hooks. Upon closer inspection this is what I found. I started carrying a tape measure (intended for the opposite end of the spectrum) and he came in at a whopping 1-1/16". I fished a few miles of this stream and caught brookies and browns both stocked and native/wild, and a couple of stocked rainbows in one small section near a camp. Since I don't think there is a way to determine just which species this guy was, I'm going with it was my second ever wild tiger trout, haha.

Wow that is small. It's almost still a Fry haha. Looks like you snagged it. You probably did it intentionally haha.

Snagging Trout is Illegal, lock him up.

You really should have wet your hands before handling it. You just removed its slime coating. I don't think it's going to make it now.
