A Cutthroat Spring

Spring has been great to me, even though the fishing has been a bit . . . yes, cutthroat. The double entendre in the title of this post was certainly on purpose. Just like I shared a post of all my great fish from Winter, I figured Spring deserved its own post. With temps rising and summer right around the corner, I wanted to share my spring fly fishing adventures with you. As I went back through my photos, though, I noticed something – I’ve overwhelmingly caught cutthroat trout!

So sit back and enjoy this gallery of cutthroat, fresh from the Rocky Mountains.

Gorgeous Bonneville Cutthroat trout.


Not my fish, but a great shot of a wild cutthroat from my friend Andrew Hill.
