While on Lake Crescent one of the days Jim Wallace landed a beautiful cutt with a red tip on its dorsal fin. I, likewise landed several small cutts like this in Barnes Creek. These fish had distinct cutthroat slashes. I also landed a couple of decent sized cutthroat in the lake that did not have the distinctive red tip dorsal. And, the cutthroat gill slashes were nearly non-existent, although they did not appear to be hybridized with the Beardslee rainbows. According to Behnke, there are genetically pure Crescenti that spawn further downstream in the Lyre River than the rainbows. While, most of the cutthroat spawn in Barnes Creek where some hybridization has occurred. Does anyone know if both types of cutthroat we caught there were Crescenti? And, have others noted this red tip fin? I'm curious as to whether the Lyre River cutts do not have that feature. Since the ones I caught in Barnes Creek all had it, I'm supposing it may be unique to the Barnes Creek cutts.
