Default Cutthroat slam?

Have any of you done the "cutthroat slam" yet? It has been something on my to-do list for a couple of years but I haven't gotten around to it. Adam Eakle did a show on it yesterday and it kind of got the juices going again to do it.

Thoughts?

Is that just catch each of the 4 subspecies in their native drainages in a calendar year?

Sort of, it is a program with the DWR and TU where you catch all 4 subspecies in their native range. They then give you a certificate and commemorative coin. There is no time limit. I went ahead and signed up for it today. I'm cool giving TU $20 more.

I signed up 3 years ago. I have caught 3/4 but haven’t been to northwest Utah for the Yellowstone cutthroat. I’m now thinking by the time I do go up there I might not be able to find the pics of the previous catches lol

I wonder if the old Yellowstone cuts that I caught out of Strawberry and Ferron Reservoirs count

Adam Eckles, last night aired the cutthroat slam. He and another guy were attempting to reach the slam in a one day time frame. He couldn't land one of subs and fell short of 1 fish.


They have a map of the drainages that qualify for the slam. I guess that's the "native" area for those species and the only area that qualifies for the slam. They have a map that you can look at to see the areas.

I'm getting too old to go chasing these type of things, plus living out of state makes it a little bit harder.

In over 60 years of fishing in Utah I have caught all of them except for the Colorado River Cut (in Utah) but have in Colorado. I tried to catch a couple a few years ago in a small stream in southern Utah but they were uncooperative.

Strawberry used to be full of Yellowstone Cuts and I caught a lot of them out of Ferron Reservoir while taking a break from deer or elk hunting.

Nope, you don't get to count them unless they were caught in the native waters.

So Bear lake cutts from Strawberry, Skoalfield, Panguitch, etc are no bueno. (Bear lake, yes) The Yellowstone cutts in Electric lake and environs also don't count.

I think Ferron has CRC's in there now. Caught some out of there a couple years ago.

The fun of this might be trying new stuff and new areas. (and catching them all over again.)
