Coastal Cutthroat Trout

Oncorhynchus clarkii clarkii

LEVEL OF CONCERN: LOW
Coastal Cutthroat trout populations in California are small, fragmented, and face multiple threats, including cumulative impacts from land use practices. While their numbers appear to be stable in the few watersheds they inhabit it is equally likely that they have declined in response to watershed alteration throughout their range.
