McCloud River Redband Trout
Native to the upper McCloud River, a tributary of the Sacramento River (Shasta and Siskiyou counties). It is believed redband trout were historically the only native fish species found in the McCloud River and tributaries above Middle Falls. Non-native rainbow, brown, and brook trouts were introduced into the upper McCloud River as early as the late 1800's. Redband trout can interbreed with rainbow trout, creating hybridized offspring that may not be as well adapted to the arid environment in which they evolved. Today, pure McCloud River redband trout are mostly found in isolated headwater tributaries where non-native trout were not introduced.
This fish is hand-crafted using stoneware clay and fired to cone 5. It is signed, dated, numbered, tabbed, and museum-wired to showcase only the fish. Contact us for commissions by Andrew.
