Default Re: fish#1:my first CUTBOW? fish#2: what type of CUTTHROAT is this?

Fish in question #2 is not a brown. Definitely a very dull rainbow, with, again, perhaps some level of cutthroat in his genes if he has the slashes you posted.

Also, since Gore Creek is a trib of the Eagle River, which is a trib of the Colorado River, any cutthroat trout or hybrids you catch in there are likely to be of the Colorado River Cutthroat variety, assuming stocking of other types of cutthroat has not taken place.
OP said Clear Creek, Cuttbows have been stocked in there.
