Fish: Cutthroat Trout

Paiute Cutthroat

Post By: Herf      Posted: 9/19/2018 8:43:03 AM     Points: 138    
Here is a picture of a Paiute Cutthroat from the backcountry of California. 15 miles by horseback and another 3 miles by foot got me to the stream where they are at (and I should say these are not in their native drainage)

With catching this subspecies of cutthroat, I have now caught every recognized subspecies of cutthroat.

Coastal Cutthroat
Bonneville Cutthroat
Humboldt Cutthroat
Lahontan Cutthroat
Whitehorse Basin Cutthroat
Paiute Cutthroat
Snake River Cutthroat
Westslope Cutthroat
Yellowstone Cutthroat
Colorado River Cutthroat
Greenback Cutthroat
Rio Grande Cutthroat
Alvord Cutthroat - this fish is from a stream that has the phenotype of the Alvord Cutthroat, even though they are not pure

Congrats on your conquest of the cutthroat. I too think that a book or at least a short story about your quest would be a worthwhile read for any trout fisherman and if you have pictures that would be an added bonus.

Apache cutthroat?
 Reply by: FishSeal      Posted: 9/20/2018 1:00:10 PM     Points: 2712    

That may be a common name. However, the Apache Trout is a different species, Oncorhynchus apache.
Cutthroat trout are Oncorhynchus clarkii, then have the different subspecies, that Herf has referred to.

Just some FYI.

I would just like to say thanks for all of the kind words. I will say that catching all of these different subspecies of cutthroats has been a challenge, totally different types of water for each, so changing up your approach is the key.

As for a book about the cutthroat, that would only be a chapter in my book about catching all the different recognized trout/char/salmon of North America. I only 7 to go, excluding a few frankenfish and some trout in the mountains of Mexico.

And also, here is a picture of an Apache Trout from a few years ago.
