It may sound like a type of Spanish bandit, but the Rio Grande cutthroat trout is actually a pretty normal trout. At first, our imaginations were filled with images of fish holding tiny little cutlasses. This fish isn’t as cool as that, but it’s still moderately cool. You know why? Because we can catch them and eat them. The Rio Grande cutthroat trout is actually one of the 14 subspecies of cutthroat trout native to the Western US, and is New Mexico’s state fish. If it’s important enough to be a state fish, then it’s important enough to be on a cool one piece!
Another one of the 14 subspecies of cutthroat trout that are on decline is the Rio Grande. Native to Western United States this fish’s native territories are unknown due to lack of research and populations occurring in Texas and Mexico. This fishing Romper is great for any south westerners who have caught this cool looking trout!
