Once thought to be extinct, Colorado’s famed greenback cutthroat trout is in the process of making a remarkable comeback. There are now over 50 waters along the Colorado Front Range where fishermen can experience the thrill of catching this beautiful fish. Colorado Greenback Cutthroat Trout: A Fisherman’s Guide will tell you about the biology, history, and the amazing recovery of the greenback, along with information on where and how to catch this unique and colorful fish.
The survival of the greenback cutthroat now hinges on the combined efforts of state and federal agencies, wildlife organizations, and the volunteer work of numerous fishermen and citizens. This book is dedicated to those individuals and organizations, and to the premise that wild native trout such as the greenback are more than worth all of our conservation efforts.
