is it true that cutthroat might be taken off the non catchable list next year?


At the present time, cutthroat trout are considered part of the “trout” bag limit in most of the state.  This means you can catch and harvest 6 cutthroat trout per day over most of Idaho.  The Magic Valley, Southeast, and Upper Snake restrict cutthroat harvest in rivers and streams to 2 cutthroat.  You can still catch and  keep 6 cutthroat in lakes and ponds.  So, if I want to go catch and keep 6 cutthroat in a lake in the Upper Snake Region, that’s currently legal and will remain legal for the foreseeable future.
