Westslope Cutthroat Trout

Oncorhynchus clarki lewisi

Westslope cutthroat trout

Westslope cutthroat trout are found in the Southeastern part of British Columbia, specifically the Elk River system and its tributaries. They are generally between 10 and 20 inches in length, occasionally bigger fish can be encountered. They can easily be identified by the bright orange marking underneath the gill plate and the heavily spotted body, which is often orange, yellow or olive in colour.

Fishing for westslope cutthroat trout is best between July and September. During daytime, they primarily feed on nymphs while they are very active on the surface in the evening hours.
