Henry's Lake: This year Looks Better Than Ever for Giant Trout
"In 1998 we began sterilizing our hybrids, which eliminated their desire to spawn," Garren added."By stocking sterilized hybrids we eliminated the threat of them breeding with our Yellowstone cutthroats and we anticipate that they will live an extra year because they aren't dealing with the stresses of spawning.This will be the first year that we will see that extra year of growth so there will be some giant fish in the lake.Probably quite a few hybrids in the 8- to 12-pound class. "The fish are phenomenal," Garren added."It's just freakin' incredible how fast they are growing.
Garren said cutthroat are most predominant in the upper stretches of the Idaho portion of the South Fork - the river gets its start in the southern reaches of Yellowstone National Park and flows through Wyoming before hitting Idaho.
The change suits fishery managers, who are trying to limit rainbows because they spawn with cutthroats.
Garren attributes the drop in rainbows to lower winter flows, higher spring flows and fishing regulations designed to target rainbows.
