SNAKE RIVER FINE-SPOTTED CUTTHROAT TROUT
WESTSLOPE CUTTHROAT TROUT
Probably the most sought after trout in the west, rainbows are tireless fighters and love to go airborne. Most easily identified by their “rainbow” band, these fish also have black spots, and dark green backs. Take note of the white tips on their pectoral, anal and pelvic fins, a trait distinguishing them from local cutthroat trout. Native to many Idaho waters, they can be found in ponds, lakes, streams and rivers. Found locally in the Big Wood, Little Wood, Big Lost, Copper Basin, the Salmon River and Silver Creek.
