The Truckee and Carson Rivers provide unique habitats for a variety of native trout species, including the Lahontan and Paiute cutthroat trout, and wild trout species including Brook, Rainbow and Lake trout. However, these iconic wildernesses are slowly being loved to death.

The California Trout Northern Sierra region, based out of South Lake Tahoe, has prioritized supporting the Lahontan cutthroat trout recovery back to its native range within the Tahoe Basin and Truckee River Watersheds, restoring the Paiute cutthroat trout to its native waters in Silver King Creek, supporting enhanced research of local fisheries and their habitats, and building a stronger voice for fisheries conservation in the region.
