The Future of Trout: 2 Reports

 

TWO MAJOR REPORTs released last week on the future for trout, both pointing to climate change as one of the most serious threats.

Trout Unlimited’s State of the Trout 2015 Report  looks at details the status and trends within 28 separate species and subspecies of trout and char that are native to the U.S.

An EPA study found that there will only be one tiny population of trout found east of the Mississippi River, and that way north in Vermont, by 2100, if no action is taken to mitigate climate change. Large areas of Oklahoma, Texas and Florida would also move from bass fisheries to carp/catfish.
