I headed up north yesterday to fish a place I hadn't been for a while. This time of year is usually good just about anywhere you go but this trip was exceptional. There are four types of hybrids (that I am aware of) in this res, many of which are very colorful. The fish I caught were anywhere from 14 to 22 inches and one really good one which of course seemed to come unbuttoned before I could add him to the mix. Here are some pics, I hope you'll enjoy.

I knew without the lake pics where you were. Those fish are indeed specimins of that wonderful little piece of heaven. They fight harder than any trout i have ever caught.

Hybirds? Looks like Rainbows to me. If its the out of state Res. I'am thinking of, I think theres only Rainbows in there.

Did you miss the big red slash mark under the jaw in the very last photo (a few posts down the page) that he's holding?

I'm pretty sure he knows what he's talking about.

I've been fishing that Res. for years and have caught 100s of fish out of there and ALL of them have been Rainbows. NO Cutts. Still say those are just Rainbows.

So you're saying that this fish with the cutthroat markings clearly visible under the jaw is a rainbow?



Look closely if you can't see it. It's there. That marking on an otherwise rainbow trout indicates that it's actually a cuttbow. Hybrid. Sorry, I don't mean to nit pick or "call you out", but you're claiming something that isn't so. Plus, while you make your claim, you're basically saying that this guy is feeding us a line. I don't believe that to be the case.

I don't know skeet and I've never fished outside of Utah, but I know that I can see a red slash under that fish's jaw. Now if you're so set on the location of those catches, then next time you're there, you need to take a better look at those fish.

I really don't see how you can dispute what he's holding there.

I'd say it's a beautiful specimen.

I did a search of the stocking for the past ten years and this is what I came up with. Triploid Troutlodge Kamloop, Hayspur Rainbow Triploid, Bear Lake Cutthroat, Domestic Kamloops, Hayspur Rainbow Triploid and Bear River Cutthroat. Whether or not any of these species can complete the spawning process and interbreed is above me.

Look in the Poc and read about the fish in Strawberry.
Even if the fish has the slash mark of a Cutthroat, if it doesn't have other markings of a Cutthroat, it's a Rainbow.
Yes there are Rainbow Trout with the orange slash under the jaw.
These fish are not concidered cross bred Cut-Bows by the DWR.
Not that it matters in this case, but it sure does at Strawberry.
In the past at Strawberry, people were sometimes cited for possession of Rainbows with the slash marks.
This was changed in this years Proc.
Check it out.
