Monday update: One of the first cutthroat was caught today since the 1900’s! #shutupandfish

Over fishing of the Lahontan Cutthroat led to the ultimate demise of the population in the late 1800’s. Earlier this month the national fish hatchery complex released 5,000 Lahontan cutthroat trout back into their native waters.
