The young men in the video do not appear to be homeless and were excited about catching a “rainbow” trout…if they knew it was a precious endangered species
perhaps they would have released it.  Are there signs posted in the watershed?

While the trout  struggles to find It's home in Sausal creek, Homosapiens are on the brink of extinction not only for a disregard of other species of life but for a disregard of his own.  While you mentioned a sadness for many reasons, your focal point, your Gestalt, was the fish.

Save a copy of the video in case the user takes it down (which he may decide to do, after seeing Kimra's comment). The account also has several other video uploads, so there are more chances to figure out who this is.
