Their hard to catch but one of the best lakes to catch a large Golden Trout in 20 Lakes Basin Loop.  Use your best stealth fishing at this lake!

Thanks RockToad!  20 Lakes Basin Loop is one of my favorites with its remote location and breath-taking views of beautiful lakes and majestic mountains.  Add to that the great fishing and you see why I keep coming back. :hiking2: :fishing3:

Yes, this is a Juvenile Lahontan Cutthroat Trout. :clap:  CDFW planted Lake-Form LCT fingerlings in this lake in the 20 Lakes Basin.  They are considered fully grown at about 3-5 years of age.  Once their older, these cutthroat trout should have a distinguishing red to orange slash mark at the throat.

Thanks for sharing WSH!

The plentiful larger black marks (spots) are challenging and combined with the darker olive body could suggest a German Brown or Loch-Leven strain - but based on the altitude and the lack of lighter colored halos around the black spots my geuss is -

Either a young Cutthroat or a Hybrid Cutt-Bow?

Whatever it is, it looks beautiful - I hope they are plentiful and grow to large sizes in the 20 Lakes Basin.

All the best, P A C

Caught this little trout in 20 Lakes Loop.  Many different types of trout out there.  Can you identify what species of trout this is?
