SELECT A TROUT

Oncorhynchus clarkii lewisi

Westslope Cutthroat

One of four native trout in Washington, this scrappy fish measures between 6 and 16 inches. They can be difficult to distinguish from other cutthroat trout species, but the Westslope Cutthroat has more small spots by the tail and none on the pectoral fins. The fish is also more silvery or green than other species.

Oncorhynchus clarkii utah

Bonneville Cutthroat

This state trout of Utah was thought to be extinct 30 years ago. But by the year 2000, 261 populations of Bonneville cutthroat trout had been identified in Utah. The color of a Bonneville cutthroat is slightly less vivid than other species, but don't let that stop you from pursuing this wily fish. Like all trout Bonneville's thrive in cool well oxygenated water.

Oncorhynchus clarki henshawi

Lahontan Cutthroat

This is the largest species of cutthroat trout with some lake residents reaching an epic 30 inches or more. Anglers perched atop ladders in Pyramid Lake chase these fish, but the state fish of Nevada also occupies a number of streams and rivers throughout the northern and eastern parts of the state. Dark olive backs and reddish/yellowish sides characterize the Lahontans found in streams and rivers, while lake-dwelling Lahontans are often mostly silver.

Oncorhynchus clarkii virginalis

Rio Grande Cutthroat

The Rio Grande Cutthroat trout is one of the most colorful trout you'll find. They have an olive-green colored back and sides with orange-reddish belly, and irregular shaped black spots concentrated toward the tail. When you manage to hook one they can be scrappy fighters for their size. If you hook into a large lake cutthroat you will have an epic battle on your hands.
