Photo detail

FILE - This 2019 file photo provided by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service shows a Lahontan cutthroat trout recently caught at Pyramid Lake, 30 miles northeast of Reno, Nev. A half century after the Lahontan cutthroat trout were added to the endangered species list, a self-sustaining population of the fish is thriving in Summit Lake in northern Nevada. For nearly a decade, members of the Summit Lake Paiute Tribe and scientists at the Global Water Center at the University of Nevada, Reno have studied Summit Lake to understand why Nevada's endangered state fish are thriving in the small, high-desert, terminal lake.
