I regularly fish the upper portion of a small stream in the Oregon coast range. Long-time locals tell me this river has never been stocked, and I think it’s too small for a migratory run. Most fish caught are in the 6-10 inch range (examples pictured above). I had assumed most fish here were costal cutthroats, as they exhibit the trademark red slash under the throat and rarely jump, but the top fish pictured looks like a textbook rainbow to me, and despite the red mark the bottom fish has a slight white tip on the rear fin. Furthermore, today I caught my record fish on this river, about 14 inches (sorry, no photo) and it jumped vigorously 6-7 times.
