Utah State Fish

Utah State Fish

The rainbow trout was named Utah’s state fish in 1971. However, the rainbow trout isn’t native to Utah.

Today’s Great Salt Lake is but a remnant of Lake Bonneville, which was a huge body of water during the Ice Age.

The most popular state fish in the West is the cutthroat trout. Several states have adopted particular subspecies of cutthroat trout. In 1997, Utahns replaced the rainbow trout with the Bonneville cutthroat trout.
