Video: Pursuing and Protecting the Lahontan Basin Cutthroat Trout

Lahontan Basin Native Trout – Guides from Trout Unlimited on Vimeo.

A beautiful video from Trout Unlimited on fly fishing the Lahontan Basin for Lahontan cutthroat trout and protecting this treasured specie. The video includes some of the monster trout of Pyramid Lake in Nevada and features guides, Doug Oullette and Dave Stanley.

From TU:

“The Lahontan Basin is an exceptional landscape that spans three western states: California, Oregon, and Nevada. Part of the Great Basin, this semi-arid region is rich in fish and wildlife and provides outstanding fishing, hunting and outdoor recreation opportunities. The Basin’s only native trout, the Lahontan cutthroat, embodies all that is exceptional about this rugged landscape: history, beauty, adaptability, and perseverance. As the largest subspecies of cutthroat trout, there is no other fish like it anywhere in the world, and TU is working to restore it throughout its native range”
