I've done wild browns, bows and brookies in Pa so far.  A goal this year is to hit the trifecta in the same day.  I have a few watersheds I can do it, and actually a few individual streams, but that's a bit harder.  I'm headed out to Montana this Summer to do some "product testing" aka staying with a buddy and fishing all day every day for a week.  Hopefully knock a few others off my list there.  You have a nice list and hopefully it continues to grow.  My dream trip is Kamchatka.  It'll be done one day not too far off and there's a few species in that region that are only native to that area.  Let alone the mouse eating 6lb rainbows that reside there.  Yeah my addiction to FF got so bad I had to open my own company lol!

I'm willing to drive up to 5.5 hours for trout... and 7 - 8 hours for saltwater fish.  :lol

I just updated the list with five new species caught in California.  Travis should get his going, too (with pictures).  He's caught at least 10 native species of native trout/salmon/char.

Lahontan Cutthroat




Coastal Rainbow




Kern River Rainbow




Little Kern Golden




California Golden




I've caught genetically pure goldens outside of their native range where they grow a lot bigger, but never in a native drainage before.  This is what they look like all grown up in Wyoming.

Check out the first page :lol.  Unfortunately the coloring is a little washed out due to the glare.  I have some better pictures, but the one I posted is consistent with the rest of the fish pics in the list. I'll post a full report when I get some time.
