Western Native Trout in Western Public Waters

Daniel Ritz

Daniel Ritz takes us on a journey around the West, sharing his experience completing the Western Native Trout Challenge over the summer of 2021. Over the course of his trip, Ritz completed a 40-part series for Trout Unlimited's digital magazine sharing his experience pursuing each of the 20 available native species of the Western 12 states over a 6-month period. In this presentation for Boise Valley Fly Fishers, Ritz will focus on the existential and ecological value of native species - specifically Idaho’s native trout and char - as well as the portal to conservation that “slam” concepts, such as the Western Native Trout Challenge and others can hold for anglers.  States Included: Arizona, Alaska, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana

Species Included: Apache trout, Dolly Varden, Alaskan Lake trout, Arctic Char, Alaskan Rainbow trout, Arctic Grayling, Colorado River cutthroat trout, Bonneville cutthroat trout, Rio Grande cutthroat trout, Gila trout, Lahontan cutthroat trout, California Golden trout, Kern River rainbow trout, Little Kern Golden trout, Redband trout, Coastal cutthroat trout, Bull trout, Westslope cutthroat trout, Yellowstone cutthroat trout, Eagle Lake rainbow trout.

The former editor of the Dana Point Times has had his work published by Trout Unlimited, Orvis, Western Native Trout Initiative, Backcountry Hunters and Anglers,Outdoor Idaho Magazine, Alaska Sporting Journal, Fish Alaska Magazine and Visit Idaho: Idaho Department of Tourism.
