    Beautiful fish and streams!!

    I can't handle a fly rod anymore and have to drag hardware behind boats now.

    These cutthroats were caught at Pyramid Lake NV and range from 8 pounds to 14. There is a slot limit at the lake. Keepers are from 17" to 20", then fish over 20" to 24" must be returned unharmed for spawning. The slot goes Keep two from 17-20 or one from 17-20 and one over 24".

    The 17"-19" fish are good eating. I like to bake or poach them. The big ones are best smoked, but finding ZigZag papers big enough is a problem.

    Great trout and great photos. Shame we didn't have Cutthroats introduced here. We did have Mackinaw introduced but unfortunately the truck taking them to a selected lake crapped out and the young fish were released into a shallow lake by the roadside. Lake Pearson in Canterbury. They seem to be extinct there now but were caught for many years in small numbers and never attained the size of their progenitors
