California Heritage Trout Challenge Application and Verification Form

To qualify for the certificate:

  1. Catch six different native trout from their historical drainages
    For example, Lahontan Cutthroat Trout are found in Heenan Lake, a designated Heritage Trout water in Alpine County. Heenan Lake is not part of the original native range for Lahontan Cutthroat but is located in a historical drainage of the native range, the East Fork Carson River, and thus qualifies for the Challenge.
  2. Document the catch with a photo of each trout, labeled with the kind of trout and name of stream or lake where it was caught.
  3. Submit the application below and supporting documentation

NOTE: All photos become property of the Department of Fish and Wildlife and cannot be returned. After DFW's review, anglers will be notified by mail. All decisions are final.
