Lahontan Cutthroat Trout
Stream form Lahontan Cutthroat Trout have a faint rosy-pink band along the lateral line, cutthroat slashes, darker coloration dominated by copper to green hues, numerous body spots, and the retention of parr marks into adulthood. The sides are copper or lemon-yellow in color, fading into a white belly and olive-copper back. In streams, they tend to be small in size; however, those caught in streams can be vibrantly colored and heavily spotted, making them a unique catch. Lake-dwelling LCT are often silvery. LCT have the notable vibrant red slash under it jaw that is characteristic of all cutthroat species.
