my post and the interesting feedback on browns, got me to wondering if there are many lowland lakes in snohomish or skagit county that hold cutthroat? i'm not talking about beaver ponds, but lakes. any thoughts?
Actually, cutthroat are the only trout species that are native to most of the lowland w. wash lakes. Most of the lakes that have a spawning inlet or outlet stream should hold a few cutts. Also, the WDFW just released their 2003 planting schedule, and it seems like a few of the Skagit county lakes are recieving cutthroat plants. I personally know of a couple lakes in the area that hold good sized cutts, but most of the time they are largely out numbered by rainbows, so they're not very common to catch. If your looking to specifically target cutts you may want to try some of the smaller lakes that don't get planted.
