How can you tell a broodstock from a holdover? I'm curious what this one is, 17 inch brookie from today.

Will usually be a darker shade with brighter spots then stockies in same area.

Thanks, do you know why this one had orange/red flesh? Does it point towards it being a holdover or was it possibly fed carotene at the hatchery?

The flesh can be misleading the best way to tell is from the skin color. But if it’s that bright red coloring it usually points to a newly stocked fish.

Of all the stocked species aren’t browns the most heat tolerant? 

With out question yes! That is why I wish lakes that can hold them over were stocked with them and save the rainbows and brookies for marginal trout water.

Cape Cod / SE MA trout on fly has been great at times, tough at times. Best part has been the solitude with nary another angler in sight. Here’s some random pics from the past two weeks
