"One of my favorite guides, and a great "take along" for interstate road-trips, is Trout Unlimited's Guide to America's 100 Best Trout Streams. It's a great way to see your state, or a state you're visiting."-www.troutworld.com
From the Back Cover
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.Many who buy the book set out to fish all the streams. For others, the guide is an essential ingredient in planning fishing and family vacations. It's a book that's as at home next to a fly tyer's bench as it is tucked into the console between the seats of a pickup truck. A portion of the sale of each book goes to TU to help conserve and protect coldwater fisheries.
