New Native Trout Forum

This entry is to announce the development of a new native trout network/forum. This site is the brainchild of Anders Halverson from Boulder, Colorado. The site also has significant input from fellow native trout enthusiasts from Scott Carles (Cutthroat Stalker) from Mendon, Utah; Gary Marston (gigharborflyfisher) from Gig Harbor, Washington; and Dave Balducci (DaveB) from San Francisco, California.

These guys all reside on the west side of the Mississippi, but that doesn't make them bad people. In fact, the "life list" these guys have compiled is quite impressive! Some have over 20 native species all caught in their native watersheds - including one species, the Alvord Cutthroat, which is considered to be extinct by Dr. Robert Behnke. The jury is still out on that one.

If your interested in educating yourself or locating native species, go to The Angler's Life List & Native Fish Network.

You can find the link on the border to the right. You can also find the links to these fellow native trout aficionados' blogs in My Blog List, also in the border to the right.
