state record

How come cutthroat arent on your record fish list?

The state record fish program was overhauled in 2016. To offer more opportunities for records, separate cutthroat records are now listed by each sub-species in alphabetical order: 

Bonneville Cutthroat

Lahontan Cutthroat

Westslope Cutthroat

Yellowstone Cutthroat 

Both Certified Weight and Catch/Release Records are available for each subspecies of cutthroat. If you don't see a record for that subspecies, it is because it is still available. Complete record fish program information is available on the IDFG website here:

*Note: Idaho Fish and Game has confirmed that this indeed did break the state record set last week. Review all state of Idaho record fish here. And, apparently if you're headed to Cascade lake, you can find the instructions for recording a state record fish.
