I think this is a young brook trout. It has the white edged fins. The markings are not very clear though. Photo taken through the water in a brook. Had an odd encounter with this fish. I shined my light in the water and though some fish scattered this one came back and kind of posed. It appeared that it almost tipped onto it's side as though it was sunning itself. I need some help with the id.

Rainbow trout, Lower Henry's Fork, Idaho.
Mountain whitefish in the upper reaches of the Lower Henry's Fork below the confluence with Warm River.
Apparently the pond is stocked periodically, so this may be 99% captured/cultivated. Nonetheless, the kid who caught it was proud to have me take its picture for iNat.
