WORLD RECORD LAHONTAN CUTTHROAT TROUT (Replica)

This replica of the world’s largest cutthroat trout is located in Crosby Lodge at Pyramid Lake Nevada. The cuttie was a Pilot Peak strain of Lahontan Cutthroat Trout and weighed in at 41 pounds in the year 1925. Some fish were unofficially recorded at closer to 60 pounds in the ’20’s and 30’s. After the strain went extinct for several decades, it was rediscovered in a mountain stream and reintroduced by biologists in 2006. The trout are only ten years old so we are hoping to see more record breakers in the coming years. The native Cui-ui fish is a favorite meal for these massive Lahontan cutties. ¬†Join us for the season opener October 1, 2016!
