The original concept of the Utah Cutthroat Slam was
presented by Trout Unlimited to the Utah Division of Wildlife
Resources as a way to have an angling adventure and support
our native trout legacy. For just $20, you can register to
embark on the challenge. 95% of the money raised will be
used to help fund native cutthroat trout conservation projects
across the State. Over $70,000 has been raised for Cutthroat
projects. Utah Trout Unlimited has spent $18,000 on numerous
projects, Utah State University has spent $4,300, the U.S.
Forest Service has spent $1,500, and DWR has invested
$32,300 in CuttSlam projects.
Cutthroat trout are beautiful, live in pristine environments and
are the only trout native to Utah and much of the Rocky
Mountain region. Help Trout Unlimited and the Utah Division of
Wildlife Resources protect this natural treasure. There are four
species of Cutthroat trout in Utah; the Bear River, the
Yellowstone, the Bonneville and the Colorado River cutthroats.
Each angler that completes the Utah
Cutthroat Slam will receive a certificate of
completion, a Cutthroat Slam medallion,
bragging rights and official recognition on
the official Utah Cutthroat Slam site, along
with the appreciation of Trout Unlimited, the
Utah Division of Natural Resources and
anglers across the State for supporting
efforts to protect our native cutthroat trout.
