Book-Trout Unlimited's 100 Best Trout Streams by John Ross. A survey of the best trout-fishing rivers and streams in the country as chosen by members of Trout Unlimited, with listings for species, hatches, flies and lures, and when to fish. Each profile contains information and maps that boost angler success. Profiles present, as well, the environmental challenges facing each stream and the role that TU and others play in protecting the fishery. Extensive interviews with anglers for whom each stream is “home water,” add depth to personal observations formed when award-winning writer and angler, John Ross, fished many of these streams himself.
The Kennebec, Penns Creek, South Holston, White River, Firehole, Copper River - these streams and ninety-four others like them provide the best trout fishing in the United States, say members of Trout Unlimited (TU). With a dozen or more streams in each of eight regions, one of America's hundred best trout streams flows within a few hours' drive of most of the nation's anglers. These are the rivers that fire anglers' dreams. Where to fish, when to go, which fly or lure to use - anglers will find it all in each profile along with a map and lists of tackle shops, relevant books, and accommodations. Readers will learn, as well, about environmental challenges facing each stream and the role that TU and others play in protecting the fishery. Extensive interviews with anglers for whom each stream is "home water" add depth to observations by award-winning writer and angler John Ross. 416 page Paperback edition. 6 x 9 inch format.
