 To keep it a little bit on topic, lunch and coffee via my Trangia 25.  Those of you who don't, should, this is such a good setup. 

Life is good.

I’m no expert, but that looks like a rainbow trout. True? Also, man that’s a lot of dogs, atleast in my opinion. I can’t have a dog because I’m allergic.
My friends don’t call me “Lantern/lampie Levi”
for nothin’,if they did call me that.

Ah but Keith is. He catches a lot of fish, pretty sure he knows them well.
See that red line below the lower jaw, the name is derived from that.

It's a cutthroat, like Keith stated. They are "technically" rainbow trout... a very close relative.

Thanks for the post Keith. Amazing location a Michigander can only dream of.


Even if you're not a fisherman, you should watch Hank Patterson. Good entertainment.

Looks like a great time was had by all!

The differences between a cutthtroat--previously considered its own species--and a redband--technical name for the whole tribe of rainbow trout--are subtle. Many true redband trout have that red mark--the gular slash. The big difference is that cuts are more predatory than most redbands, and have teeth on the back of the tongue and the top of the throat. As we were taught when I was doing fisheries work, "If you can stick your finger down its throat, and pull it out with bleeding, it's a redband." But even that isn't cut and dried, as some redbands have those teeth, too.

Planting of rainbow trout through out the range has diluted most "true" cuts to the point that it may be meaningless to even distinguish between them. So if you want to call a trout with a gular slash a cut, go ahead. Anyone who argues has no more reason to do so than you.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Looks like you had some intense competition for that fish.  Hopefully you had fried fish with your tater soup.

Well, it's what I would call a cutthroat so there. As @Gunhippie noted, been lots of interbreeding. Of note, there is a lake about 100mi east of this one that has among the purest cutthroats around, and FWP is using em for stocking other places.
  Not sure if this one is stocked, no stocking records when I did a quick check, though old records are really poor, and it looks like a place they would have dumped some fish in at some point.  Crappy little outlet creek, no real inlet, so maybe some spawning. Not many fish here.

My wife is sore today but says she still loves me 🙂

Found it, they do stock it with 2" Westslope Cutthroats every couple years.

I'm with ya Keith, I'd call it a cut...

Timm is spot on with his description/ analysis.
Of all the guys I've met in the fishing community, only a purist would get bent out of shape about it. Everyone else just wishes they could have caught it.

Oh yeah, next time remember to hold it to the camera at arm's length so you can say it was a 30"er.

I once spent a week with Dr. Robert Beneke, noted expert on western trout, fishing tiny desert streams around the Oregon/Nevada border. We were looking for remnant populations of the various cutthroat reputed to be in the area. We caught some amazing fish--how does a 19" trout survive in a 8"-wide stream with water temps into the eighties?--but none seemed to be pure cutthroat. This was in the mid-eighties, so genetic analysis  wasn't widely available, but the good Doctor based his calls on physical characteristics. Fun trip, but ultimately dissapointing.

Looks like the Mrs. is telling the dogs a fish story.  
Rainbow, Cutthroat-  then there's the seagoing Steelhead to further muddle things.  Nice post!

Steelhead are just redband or rainbow with access to the sea. They'll usually have both a resident and migratory population.

Cutthroat have an anadramous population, too. Sea-run cuts used to be common on the West coast, but are in trouble these days. Sucks, as they got big--16-25"--and are some of the best eating trout I've had.

Nice pictures, Keith.  Looks like you folks had a beautiful day and dogs are always happy to get out.  Even a real slow day of fishing trumps just about everything else.  Thanks for sharing!

I am always amazed at anadromous species. While not truly anadromous (the great lakes are fresh water), we enjoy salmon and steelhead in many of our cold water streams. We have some of the best steelheading here in the great lakes region. Occasionally we also run into a LRB (lake run brown), and they are HUGE!
