Default Native/Non-Native

From my understanding, here are the fish Native to Colorado:

1) Black Bullhead
2) Channel Catfish
3) Green Sunfish
4) Greenback Cutthroat
5) Orange Spotted Sunfish


***Questionable

*Colorado River Cutthroat
*Rio Grande Cutthroat
*Mountain Whitefish

Am I missing any? And are the questionable ones native or non-native to the state?

Hey thanks for the super helpful reply.

And I did google it prior to this post.

Finding conflicting lists, I thought I would ask some fellow anglers. Sure glad I did. Boy, what would I ever do without you, ass.

The Cutthroat (Oncorhynchus clarki) deserves to be state fish, as it is the only trout that is native (indigenous) to Colorado.

It was my understanding that Pike were non-native/introduced... And cutbows are a cross between native cuttys and non-native bowbows...
