At the present time, cutthroat trout are considered part of the “trout” bag limit in most of the state. This means you can catch and harvest 6 cutthroat trout per day over most of Idaho. The Magic Valley, Southeast, and Upper Snake restrict cutthroat harvest in rivers and streams to 2 cutthroat. You can still catch and keep 6 cutthroat in lakes and ponds. So, if I want to go catch and keep 6 cutthroat in a lake in the Upper Snake Region, that’s currently legal and will remain legal for the foreseeable future.
