Yes, cutthroat have the distinctive red slash under the jaw as others have mentioned. Here is an example of one I caught last spring in TN that has this genetic trait. There are no cutthroat in this stream now but the fish have enough cutthroat in their genes to occasionally get one with a pretty nice red slash under the jaw...

Basically, yeah... We could discuss to what degree it is a cuttbow all day long but provided we are fairly certain there is cutthroat in its lineage it is a cuttbow. Some of the San Juan fish still have some cutthroat generics in them from whatever line of hatchery fish they came from- albeit not very much cutthroat. some of them are still referred to as "cuttbows."

As this fish grows you will see more of the Cutthroat characteristics Especially the eye and head areas. Pure rainbow strain has a smaller head and eye. than the cutty.

So if I'm 1/256 Mexican you would still classify me as Mexican?

I'm telling you, its a Bow with a cold sore.

LOL. Tell the guy who caught it there is probably some cutthroat in it and let him call it whatever he wants.

We really can't be certain either way unless we were there (and had it genetically tested if we wanted 100% certainty)- we don't have the whole picture of the fish, literally. (from all angles)

If someone is seven different races, they are sometimes labeled by what race makes up the greatest percentage. This is done for simplicity. It does not stop them from having that heritage and being of the other races, however.

It is an interesting question to debate- at what point does a hybrid stop being a hybrid?

And no. I don't mean to argue. I am just pondering this (slow day).
