LAHONTAN CUTTHROATLahontan Cutthroat: The Lahontan Cutthroat trout is the largest cutthroat species, and is the state fish ofNevada. The species is native to the Lahontan basin of central Nevada and mid-eastern California. The presentdistribution is restricted to a few lakes and streams within and outside the historic range. Dark olives backsand reddish to yellowish sides frequently characterize the Lahontan found in streams, while the sides of lakedwelling Lahontans are often silvery, then turns reddish during spring spawn. The largest recorded Lahontantrout weighed in at 41 pounds (1925).PYRAMID LAKELIMITS 2 PER DAY. ONE 17” TO 20” & ONE OVER 24”OR TWO 17” TO 20”SACRAMENTO PERCHWhen their habitat was altered and the non native sunfish introduced, the perch virtually disappeared fromthe Central Valley and Delta. The Sacramento perch were unable to compete with the black bass, bluegill andcrappie, which raided the perch’s nest. The perch, unlike the introduced sunfish, do not protect their nests andwere steadily replaced in the ecosystem by the bass, crappie and bluegill. To catch the perch now, you have togo to one or three places- Crowley Lake near Bishop, Pyramid Lake in Nevada or Lagoon Valley Lake betweenFairfield and Vacaville. The largest recorded Sacramento Perch weighed in at 4 lbs, 9 oz (1971).PYRAMID LAKENO LIMITCUI-UIThe Cui-ui (Chasmistes cuius) is a lake sucker found only in Pyramid Lake, Nevada [1]. The cui-ui also inhabitedWinnemucca Lake up into the 1930s, when drought in combination with unrestricted diversion of water causedthe lake to dry [1]. Cui ui are obligate stream spawners and although adult and juvenile cui-ui inhabit PyramidLake year round, adults also use the lower 30 miles of the Truckee River during the spawning season.PYRAMID LAKEPROHIBITED
