The "Cutbow" is part Rainbow Trout
and part Cutthroat Trout. Notice the
yellow color of the cutthroat is not

similar to the rainbow trout.

The red slash or cut in the lower part
of the gill helps distinguish it as a
cutbow - or part rainbow and part
cutthroat trout.

These are present in several streams
in Yellowstone National Park,
especially in the Gallatin River. They
are fun to catch and seem to fight like
rainbows but feed like cutthroats or
maybe it's right the opposite. Just
