Are there any wild trout left in California?

    Yes. The five most common species of trout in the state are rainbow, brook, brown, cutthroat and lake trout. The rarest species of trout in the state is probably the golden trout, a subspecies of rainbow trout found only in Golden Trout Creek, Volcano Creek, and South Fork Kern River. Exploitation and introduced brook, brown, and rainbow trout cause problems for this species. They’re currently listed as “threatened”, but are not yet extinct. There is also concern, in general, about the state’s native salmon, steelhead, and trout species being in general decline, with a prediction of 65% of them going extinction within a century.
