LOCAL CATCH

Prepare to catch (and release) some of Truckee's famous trout.



CUTTHROAT TROUT

(Oncorhynchus Clarkii Henshawi) Lahontan Cutthroat is native to this area and the state fish of Nevada. Lahontan cutthroat trout can vary greatly in color. You might see a dark olive back with reddish, yellow or silvery sides; or a coppery to purple-pink body color. Also seen are the telltale red markings of cutthroats under their jaws. Many large black spots cover their bodies.



BROWN TROUT

(Salmo Trutta) Brown trout can be distinguished by their brownish-yellow color and the scattered black, red, and orange spots on their sides. Typically around 12-inches long, Browns are extremely wary and are the most difficult of the trout to catch. Brown trout are stubborn fighters when hooked, but do not put on as spectacular an acrobatic show as their Rainbow cousins.



RAINBOW TROUT

(Oncorhynchus Mykiss) Rainbows are distinguished by the presence of a pinkish to red longitudinal band, varying numbers of black spots and a frequently pink or red gill cover. Fish up to 12-inches long are common and occasionally larger specimens are taken. Rainbow trout are known as spectacular fighters and frequently jump from the water when hooked.
