"Little Miss Cutthroat. Your the Queen of my drift boat. You swam into my life today, straight out of the blue. Little Miss Cutthroat. My Yellowstone dreamboat. More than just my fly is hooked on you."
Song from www.fishingmusic.com.

Colorado is known for the Cutthroat Trout, yet very few know much about the Greenback Cutthroat Trout.
The Greenback Trout is not only native to Colorado, but can only be found here in Colorado. However, this trout probably is the hardest for fishermen to find and generally requires hiking. While fishing for the Greenback Trout, you will find yourself secluded and surrounded by the beautiful Colorado wilderness.
Another thing that makes this trout so special it was thought to be instinct from the 1930’s to 1957 when a population of Greenbacks was found in Rocky Mountain National Park. Through conservation and reintroduction programs, the park now holds many opportunities for Greenback fishing as well as across the state.
The experience of catching and releasing a Greenback Cutthroat Trout should be on every Colorado Angler’s bucket list.
The Greenback Cutthroat was the major inspiration for creating Mile High Trout, Performance Fishing Apparel for the Colorado Angler. Show your Cutthroat Pride.
