My list of Salmonids (so far)…

January 18, 2010

Over the past several years, I have consulted a lot of maps, researched in books, on the web, and conferred with other enthusiasts, all in my quest to catch native trout and salmonids. As a result, I’ve seen a lot of beautiful places, put a lot of miles on my rig, and had a helluva time. Along the way, I have completed the following:

• California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Heritage Trout Challenge twice (certificates #66 & #144)

• Nevada Department of Wildlife’s Native Fish Slam

• The International Federation of Fly Fishers Cuttcatch Program

• The Wyoming Game and Fish Cuttslam certificate

• Utah Department of Natural Resources Cutthroat Trout Slam

Below are the photographic result of all of my efforts. I’m still in the process of locating and catching other species…so the quest continues. Enjoy!
