When I bought my new license today, I picked up a copy of the Tennessee Fishing Guide. I was looking at the records, and noticed the that there is a record for a cutthroat trout someone caught out of the obey river. The record is 6 oz. Anyone caught any other cuts in the area? I know they aren't stocked regularly, but maybe there's been a mix up at a hatchery somewhere. I have a friend who swears up and down he's caught cutthroats, or atleast cutbows out of the south holston. I've seen the pictures. I think it could go either way, but I've never seen a real cutthroat, just pictures. I know they're rainbowish with an orangle lower jaw, maybe some orange on the belly, and fewer dots than a normal rainbow. Just curious if anyone else knows anything about this.

BTW, the record is from 1969

I've pondered on that record for years now, asked around and havn't got anything that could pass as an answer.

I'd say it escaped from the hatchery there at Dale Hollow, i do believe there are a few cutbows swimming around in TN.

I've worked with several cutthroats that are way over 200 lbs. Where can I claim the record?
:eek:

It's not uncommon for the hatcheries to release some of their older brood stock during the stocking programs. I caught a "hook jaw" last year in NC after a recent stocking.
