Rare trout caught up north? video confirmation

hey guys,

heres a clip from my yearly trip up north past Sudbury.

I got into a few nice brook trout and caught a pretty unique trout. The local i fished with on my last day was telling me that the ministry had introduced cut throat trout to the fishery years ago, and since then, they have cross breeded with the rainbow trout during their spawning seasons. they call it a "cutbow" up there.. lol

I also got into a few decent pre spawn small mouth bass with Tyler Dunn which was pretty fun. Up north, their bass season is pretty much all year round.

heres the clip:


Let me know what you think about that trout being a "cutbow"

Thanks for watching,

Dan

I have lived in the PNW for 40 years.
That includes both Washington and Oregon.
Cut-Bows are fairly common in some areas of the PNW.

Always enjoy your videos, Dan. Nice fish, either way.

My favourite area in the world, Northern Ontario...gotta get back soon.

I fish a few waters that have “Cuttbows” and Rainbows and easiest way to tell is only Cutthroat have teeth on base or back of the tongue.

Henry's Lake Cuttbows

Henry's Lake in east central Idaho (head waters of the Henry's Fork/Snake River) has a tremendous population of cuttbows. The Fish and Game actually have a cross breeding program that produces these fish. If you go to the lake in the spring , you can volunteer to help with the harvest of the eggs and milt. Apparently, they are sterile, so there is no fear of them taking over the Fork. The largest one I personally have caught was just over 9 lbs, but I had a client catch and release a 10+lb fish. My scale said 10 lbs and 3 oz. Sinking lines and a steady, slow retrieve seems to be the ticket.

I'm impressed you were standing on that wall, wouldn't want to fall backwards, that side of water looked pretty mean.

Nice fish Dan, I think it was straight up rainbow. I've caught a lot of them from the same place. I've never heard of cutthroat or cuttbows in that river or the lake it goes into of flows out of. really fun place to fish!

its not a cut bow; the red gash is much more prominent.
fished that area too; its a nice adorable little steelhead, tho.

tip: you will have even better luck by not staning on the berm. They can see you. The fish there take dries, and are used to looking up for their food.
