About Lahontan Cutthroat Trout

Lahontan cutthroat trout are steel gray to olive green above, with yellow-brown sides and red or pink along the belly. Round black spots scattered over fish, but more closely grouped towards the tail. Fins are uniform in color, lacking the white tips that identify similar fish. The crimson red or orange slash marks on throat under the jaw give this fish its namesake appearance.
