About this book

Cutthroat tells the full story of the genuine native trout of the American West. This new edition, thoroughly revised and updated after 20 years, synthesizes what is currently known about one of the most interesting and colourful fishes, includes much new information on its biology and ecology, asks how it has fared in the last century, and looks toward its future.

In a passionate and accessibly written narrative, Patrick Trotter, fly fisher, environmental advocate, and science consultant, details the evolution, natural history, and conservation of each of the cutthroat's races and incorporates more personal reflections on the ecology and environmental history of the West's river ecosystems. The bibliography now includes what may be the most comprehensive and complete set of references available anywhere on the cutthroat trout.

[Here] is a place to find out everything about the 12 species of that fabulous game fish.--Sacramento Bee "This book will be useful to all those interested in fishes, whether cutthroat trout aficionados or not."--Choice: Current Reviews For Academic Libraries
