Fishing for all the Species of Trout

5 September 2005 By Dan Bachman • The-Trout-Chronicles • Comments (0)

There are currently over 40 species and sub-species of trout that have been identified in in North America. A couple species are extinct and there are yet others that are protected by the endangered species act that make it is illegal to fish for them. But due to a bit of wonderlust I think it would be fun to travel around the country and fish for each of the individual species. Now it may take me quite a few years to accomplish such a thing-but here goes nothing.

So far I have caught the following 4 trout: Rainbow, Brown, Westslope Cutthroat and Brook Trout which is actually a Char species.

On Labor Day I am going to try my hand at Whitehorse Basin Cutthroat Trout found in only a few creeks in SE Oregon. And the following weekend Yellowstone Cutthroat and possibly the Snake River Finespotted Cutthroat.

Stay tuned, I hope to return successful and with pictures…
