    One of the recent issues of Fly Fisherman ran a nice story from a guy that was traveling and clicking Cutthroat subspecies off his list (complete with beautiful watercolor renderings).

    Any thoughts on where you'll go after the Colorado River Cutt's... or do you already have that one in the bag?
    Joe: Thanks! Yes, I read that article, it was pretty good, I guess it got me to thinking about completing the Wyoming Cut Slam program. Last year when I went into the Wind River Range I caught a bunch of cutties out of two lakes. One of the photos looks to me like a Yellowstone, the other one looks like a Colorado, I just need to take the time to go into Game and Fish and get a reading from them. If I need a Colorado cuttie I have a stream picked out that TU planted with Colorado cutthroats to try and get them reintroduced, it is up high in the drainage and they have something blocking other trout from migrating up. If I need a Yellowstone I will get that in a couple weeks as I'm headed up to the NE section of the park, waiting until after Labor Day so it won't be so crowded.

    Thanks for the report Larry....brought back memories of our WY Cut Slam trip a few years ago. We camped in the Tri-Basin area as well, then over near Dubois - we managed to complete our slam in 1 week...despite 3 flat tires (all in Tri-Basin Divide area) on a rental and a vehicle swap back in Jackson!

    We submitted our photos, and waters fished via email. Within a few weeks we received our "official" WY Cut Slam certificate, pretty cool.....

    I can believe the flat tires, some parts of those roads are pretty tough. Congrats on completing the Wyoming Cut Slam! I'm now 3/4 of the way there, did a trip over to LaBarge Creek today and landed a bunch of Colorado cutthroats. I have some photos of a trip into the Winds, but not sure what species they are, but will make a trip over to the Game and Fish office to confirm. Otherwise I might have to make a trip into the park for the Yellowstone cutthroat.

    In case you missed it, Big Sky Journal had an article awhile back - don't recall the issue date but certainly it can be found on their website archives with a search of Tri Basin etc...

    Good luck completing the Slam, I am guess you might have already completed with Yellowstone's from the Winds.....ever made the trek over to the Wiggins Fork?

    Yes, that was a very good article, helped a bunch in trying to narrow down the search for Wyoming Cutthroat.

    I'm pretty sure I have a couple different Yellowstones, one from the Winds and another from the Bighorn. If true then I have completed the Cut Slam, but I want to go into Game and Fish and confirm before submitting my application. Forgot to mention that no I haven't made it to Wiggins Fork, guess I will look it up.

    Great Pics. I love fishing for cuts of all types... I love the area / wilderness where they thrive. Congrats on the slam... Keep us posted if you made it happen.

    Jealous is an understatement my friend. Well done!
