Is this a Strawberry Tiger? And wildfire update
Caught this today over by Renegade. Definitely has Tiger patterns but the rest of it looks more like a cutthroat. It doesnít have all the same features as a Tiger.

As for the rest of the day, we had 3 people on our boat and caught 29 cutthroats and 1 rainbow vertical jigging. Tried trolling a flasher and pink squid for an hour between 35-60 feet and didnít get any kokes. Still have never caught a koke. Not sure what Iím doing wrong.

Ventured over to the Soldier Creek side to take a peek at the fires. Helicopters and planes were going non stop. The fire is still out of control.

Not really sure what that is, perhaps just a color/pattern variant cutthroat.

I have got some like that fishing for kokanee
I didn't see them like that last year that I remember

if you are fishing for koke in Renegade there is not a lot there

you need to start early for them sometimes they shut down at 9AM
tell me where you are fishing and how you fish for kokes maybe I can help

if you have a fishfinder you can tell how deep to put your downrigger.

Tiger? That looks more like a leopard pattern, to me! Laugh

Seriously, though...that is weird! It's EXACTLY like a leopard pattern, on the mammal feline. Nature is fascinating.

I was on the water early this morning. I caught several cutts from 5:15 - 6:00. Boated the first koke at 6:05 and had pretty steady action on pink squid at 37' and 41' until 9:15. All told we boated 11 Kokanee during that two hour window and then it shut down. Also landed a beautiful 25" cutt that was sent back to eat Chubbs.

i have caught a few like that ,i think they are tigers but i wouldn't keep any of those be cause they have cutt throat markings.and any fish with cutt markings are considered cutts by the law .

No, it is not a tiger. It is a cutthroat with a very unique spotting pattern. Cool fish for sure.

I have no doubt it's a cutthroat and I've seen lots of cutthroat with markings or spots up to there nose in fact most of the cutthroat out of Strawberry have spots all the way to the nose.

do you think i just started fishing strawberry yesterday , i've caught so many cutts i when i close my eyes that's all i see .these fish are not typical for a cutt in any way. one of the main ways to tell a cutt from other fish is the lack of spots on there heads . there have been tigers planted in strawberry in the pas t and are showing up this year . just sayin

sorry to question you about the species.

Saying that it's not a cut due to having spots on the head is NOT a good way to decide.

You have probably caught many more fish at Strawberry then I have but I've been on a few netting with the DWR at Strawberry Res and have seen a few.

Also I've learned something I was under the impression they never planted tiger trout in Strawberry and never seen one in a test sample.

 i 'm sorry i i was kind of a jerk on my last post . i honestly don't know for sure what kind of fish that is but ,unlike the pics you provided the odd fish has heavy consistent spots the cutts you show have heavy spots on the tails and lighter spots on the head ,i am confused about the pectoral fin color orange screams cutt throat . odd for sure , your probably right though

I can find no record of tiger trout ever being planted in Strawberry (I wish they would plant them, but I doubt they ever will. Too many anglers can't tell a cutt from a rainbow, so no need to complicate it even further by adding another species.). I know some tigers have been caught in Strawberry, especially around The Ladders. Undoubtedly, some tigers travel through the mountain tunnel, from Currant Creek, and enter Strawberry by way of The Ladders.

Iíll say it again...that fish in original post is undoubtedly a cutthroat with a unique spotting pattern. Definitely no tiger trout....

I just heard from Alan Ward,Strawberry Project Leader,
Utah Division of Wildlife Resources:

'No, tigers were ever stocked directly into Strawberry in the last 18 years (the time since I have been here), and I have no records on file of any being stocked prior to that either. As you suggest, it is most likely that they are making their way down the tunnel from Current Creek Res. In fact most of them that are caught, are caught right there at the ladders."

I think what you may have seen or heard about tigers being planted in Strawberry is there was a petition going around trying to get them planted there but I do not think it happened but as shown in other posts I find myself wrong time to time.
