Chris Shockey and I put 1600 miles on a rental car last week driving Colorado for that state’s cuttslam…the attempt at catching all native subspecies of the cutthroat trout (Onchorynchus clarki) that are indigenous to Colorado. We were able to catch both the Greenback Cutt and Colorado River Cutt in Rocky Mountain National Park. Both of these subspecies have been upgraded from the Endangered Species Act Listing to a Threatened Species listing, but only about 20 streams are known to harbor each population. We caught Rio Grande cutts at two different streams in southern CO. According to the last issue of Trout magazine the Rio Grande Cutt will likely be listed on the Endangered Species Act listing by next month. We additionally caught Arctic Grayling, Kokanee Salmon and brook trout. We also saw prairie dogs, elk, moose, beaver, bighorn sheep, porcupine, antelope, marmot, pika, chipmunks, red squirrels, spruce grouse, heron, a golden eagle, kingfisher, Lewis jay, kestrel, hawks, crows, ravens, ptarmigan and a dozen or more unidentified birds and creatures.
