Bull Trout

Salvelinus confluentus

LEVEL OF CONCERN: EXTINCT
Bull trout are extinct in their range in California; the last known individual was captured on the McCloud River in 1975. Bull trout were likely in decline for most of the 20th century prior to their eventual extirpation due to construction of Shasta Dam and the subsequent elimination of their food supply.
