Historic records provide evidence that Rio Grande cutthroat trout(Oncorhynchus clarki virginalis) were indigenous to some Texas streams. This information includes railroad survey reports and several accounts in a major sporting publication of the late 1800s, including a drawing with color description. Published accounts continued through the mid-1900s, after which man's activities made these streams unsuitable for trout survival.
