cutthroat

Biologists are saying the number of cutthroat trout in the Hoback River has surged in the years since a fish-stocking program was phased out there.  The Wyoming Game and Fish Department discontinued the stocking program in 2005.  The agency also discontinued a number ofother trout-stocking programs around the state at the same time.  Game and Fish biologists had discovered that hatchery-raised cutthroat often were not surviving the winter.  Wild trout apparently have a higher survival rate.  Between 2006 and 2011, the average rate of cutthroat caught and counted on one section of the Hoback River surged almost 50% compared with the previous five years.  At the same time, biologists say Hoback River cutthroat not only are more numerous, they tend to be bigger than they were before.

  • Hunting season = diet season - August 18, 2014
    I grew up hunting elk with horses. In my opinion, that’s the best way to get the job done. You can pack a comfortable camp far back into the wilderness, then hunt on foot from there. If someone’s lucky enough to bring down one of the beasts, loading the carcass onto a pack horse is […]
