Bowcutt / Cutbow Trout
The Bowcutt (or Cutbow) is a sterile hybrid trout species made from cross-breeding a Rainbow Trout and Cutthroat Trout. Many times, they will look like a Rainbow Trout with larger spots that are situated toward the rear of the fish. It also tends to have the red slash under its jaw that is characteristic of the Cutthroat Trout. The species is produced by Nevada hatcheries and stocked throughout many lakes and reservoirs in northern Nevada. A Bowcutt is created with a paternal Rainbow Trout while a Cutbow had a Cutthroat Trout as a father.
