Cutthroat: Native Trout of the West - Product Image

Cutthroat: Native Trout of the West

Cutthroat: Native Trout of the North West-2ND Edition

By Patrick Trotter


This book is a definite must for anyone interested in Cutthroat trout. Not the cooking and eating of , or the fishing for, but the trout themselves. It is a complete and detailed look at all known or possible subspecies of the Cutthroat trout from the Coastal species to Laotian cutthroat to lesser known species such as the Piute cutthroat.

The book is divided into 15 chapters, thirteen of which cover the various subspecies. Information on their native range, morphology, life history, current status, as well as their management (or mismanagement as the case may be) is included in each chapter. The first two chapters include an overview of the species as a whole, evolution, and prehistoric distributions. There is also a forward by Dr. Trout himself, Robert Behnke in which he gives his blessing to the book and adds much credibility to the information within.

One of the finest things about the book is its readability. Trotter is a fisherman turned biologist and the text reflects this by being unassuming yet very informative. I gave the book a 9 only because it suffers from a slight case of out datedness as it was published in 1987. Much knowledge has been gained on the subject since, but the book is still a very important overview of Cutthroat trout ecology and no one who professes to understand salmonids should be caught without having read it.

I might add that Pat Trotter is currently working in the Seattle area as a salmonid ecology consultant. I have heard him speak and highly recommend him as a benefactor of the often neglected Cutthroat trout.
