The Lahontan cutthroat trout in Nevada's Pyramid Lake are pretty uncommon.
There really isn't another trout species in North America (and possibly anywhere) that has the potential to consistently grow into the 18-25 pound range. But that hasn't always been the case with Pyramid Lake's Lahontans.... [ READ MORE... ]
