I assume you mean coppernose BG (CNBG)?
It's hard to see the coloration of the head above the eyes for sure. Northern and CNBG can have very similar colors depending on location but it "looks" like there could be a patch above and behind eye that would lead me to say yes, it could be a CNBG.

I agree - it could be a Coppernose.

The copper stripe is usually bigger and easier to see on larger fish, if you have any.

Ditto, I *think* it is a CNBG, but not 100% positive.

CNBG. Has 12 anal fin rays (CNBG) vs 11 for BG. See this for lots of CNBG info. Also has other CNBG traits.

Cnbg have a black area at the back of the dorsal fin. At least mine do.
