I know Rainbow trout and Cutthroat trout interbreed, but I have never known how to tell if I have caught a rainbow or a cutbow. Does anyway know of a foolproof way of determining this?

Thanks guys. I thought that a cutbow would not have the slash on the jaw, but I see that I am wrong. I am now certain that over the years some of the cutthroat that I thought I was catching were actaully hybrids. My favorite fish is the purebred westslope cutthroat - nothing can beat the colors on that fish (except maybe a golden trout, but I have never caught one of those).
