Peter Moyle is the Distinguished Professor Emeritus in the Department of Wildlife, Fish and Conservation Biology and Associate Director of the Center for Watershed Sciences, at UC Davis. Inland trout can also be impacted with stocking of hatchery fish for recreation. [8] Coastal cutthroat trout use a large variety of habitat types, including lower and upper reaches of both large and small river systems, estuaries, sloughs, ponds, lakes, and near shore ocean waters. This subspecies is named after the indigenous Northern Paiute peoples. Compounding the issue is natural hybridization that occurs with coastal rainbow trout/steelhead, making identification and differentiation difficult, even for well-trained biologists. Fishing season runs from October 1st to June 30th, with the peak season being December-April. Coastal Cutthroat trout are the least studied salmonid along the North Coast. Cutthroat Trout Cutthroat trout encompass large group of related salmonoids that populated most of the western United States. These fish hybridize with native redband, rainbow, Golden, and Cutthroat trout, and their offspring replace genetically pure populations in the limited habitats they still occupy. Robert Lusardi is the California Trout/UC Davis Wild and Coldwater Fish Researcher focused on establishing the basis for long-term science specific to California Trout’s wild and coldwater fish initiatives.

Pollution from surface runoff, sewage discharges, and storm drains can degrade water quality and aquatic habitats. Abundance data from California populations are typically incomplete and unpublished, but suggest that Coastal Cutthroat populations are probably significantly smaller than they were historically, and are either currently stable or in decline due to extensive estuary and stream alteration throughout their range in California.

Hatcheries and releases of hatchery reared salmonids into the wild can negatively impact wild populations through competition, predation, disease, and loss of fitness and genetic diversity. The LCT was listed as endangered by the U.S. Improperly managed logging increases sediment in streams, increases solar input which increases stream temperatures, and degrades riparian cover. Culverts and other passage or drainage modifications associated with roads often block migration and restrict fish movements, which can fragment populations. They are more strongly tied to freshwater than most of the anadromous salmonids, especially in California, and resident non-migratory populations exist. Instream gravel mining also removed riparian vegetation and spawning gravels and degraded riparian habitats.
