Cheyenne - A western adventure and certainly a challenge, the Wyoming Cutt-Slam is one of the most sought-after achievements for a trout angler. As the summer begins, and the rivers are flowing clear, it’s a good time to pursue native trout.

The Cutt-Slam challenges anglers to catch Wyoming’s four subspecies of cutthroats — Bonneville, Colorado River, Snake River and Yellowstone — in their respective native range.

“For trout enthusiasts, it is more than catching fish,” said Alan Osterland, Wyoming Game and Fish Department chief of fisheries. “The Cutt-Slam will most certainly take anglers to remote places in Wyoming where they’ve never been before, through spectacular country and of course, to wonderful fishing waters.”

Beyond the reward of memories, those who complete the challenge will receive a personalized certificate featuring the four subspecies, a Wyoming Cutt-Slam commemorative medallion provided by Wyoming Trout Unlimited and a Cutt-Slam vehicle decal. For consideration, anglers must submit to Game and Fish a photo of each species labeled with the date and location caught. Submissions can be sent with a mail-in application or online.

A new interactive mapping tool on the Game and Fish website helps anglers plan their trip through Western Wyoming. It provides the location of waters native to each species and gives recommendations on where to fish.
 
The Wyoming Cutt-Slam was founded 22 years ago by Ron Remmick, a Game and Fish fisheries biologist, to encourage anglers to learn about Wyoming’s cutthroat trout, their habitat needs and the ways Game and Fish manages these native fish. Since 1996, 1,591 anglers have been recognized for completing the aquatic treasure hunt. To see photos of past recipients and for more information, visit the Cutt-Slam website.
