One in the series by Jay Fleming on Yellowstone trout is this photo of Kevin Osantowski, a fisheries technician with the environmental group Yellowstone Coalition, holding a lake trout netted on a National Park Service boat. Lake trout outweigh and outlive cutthroat trout. They also prey on their smaller cousins, and one lake trout can consume some 40 cutthroats in the course of a year.
