Are cut throat trout threatened?

    Yes, several native subspecies of cutthroat are currently listed as threatened by the federal government. This is generally due to loss of habitat and introduction of non-native species into the fish environment. Cutthroat Trout are native to western North America, specifically in California’s Inyo National Forest (Cottonwood Creek). Excessive levels of fine sediment in the channel seems to limit the habitat for these fish, and livestock grazing of meadows has been linked to the delivery of sediment to the channel.
