By Cumberland Times News, Md. Jul. 13--Hi Mike, This is in reference to the March 23 article "Wants trout answers." That was another appeal to Gov. O'Malley and or DNR Fisheries Division to address ongoing concerns. We questioned whether or not the 2006 Brook Trout Management Plan was made into a regulation using the proper regulatory processes. We the bait fisherman feel our rights and heritage have been infringed upon by this regulation taking away over 100 miles of bait fishing in...

Blythe Bridge teenager Liam Hamnett is becoming something of a game fishing expert. The Blythe Bridge High School student, aged 14, returned from a fishing holiday in Scotland having recorded the best catch of a trip he enjoyed with his grandparents Peter and Rene Dale. Peter, secretary of the Potteries Angling Society, and his wife Rene spend two weeks a year touring the Scottish rivers and still waters after salmon and trout. However, on this occasion they were both upstaged by their...

By Kevin Klott, Anchorage Daily News, Alaska Jul. 3--With less than 24 hours remaining until this long fishing weekend begins, anglers will be delighted to know they have plenty of time to catch an Alaska salmon or two. The trick will be pin-pointing what kind of salmon you want -- red or king -- and knowing where to look. That would mean avoiding offshore fisheries in the Cook Inlet and Resurrection Bay, where this weekend's tides aren't the greatest for sinking a baited line for...

The lines of anglers waiting to cover prime trout beats bear witness to a need Colorado might someday rise to meet, if anyone heeds a small change in wording of a policy paper wildlife commissioners approved last month. For decades, trout fishers have been growing in number. The crowding is conspicuous, especially among fly fishers who favor quality trout habitats, which Colorado calls Gold Medal waters. No one is making streams anymore (and few reservoirs). Meanwhile, public access has...

By Mike Cassidy, San Jose Mercury News, Calif. Jun. 27--Maybe it's a little silly to compare Fluidigm Chief Executive Gajus Worthington to the salmon he grew up catching in Alaska. The same salmon that would leave home to make a long and circuitous trip just to end up back where they started. Worthington, after all, hasn't literally wound up back in Alaska. He's still toiling at his 140-person start-up in South San Francisco -- a company that makes a tiny device that he says will...

By ANDREW FORGRAVE Rural Affairs Editor A SPECIAL angling guide is being launched in an attempt to curb the River Dee's salmon crisis. Atlantic salmon in the river are failing to achieve sustainable spawning levels that will safeguard stocks in the future. The Welsh Dee Trust says a compulsory season-long catch-and- release policy could be imposed on the river if anglers retain too many young fish. Its postcard-sized guide will inform anglers how to handle caught salmon and...

By Donna M. Perry WILTON - Matt Carlson brought his fishing pole back over his right shoulder and cast his line into the calm waters above the Wilson Stream dam Monday morning. The 11-year-old Wilton boy and his friend, Brody Pond, also 11 and of Wilton, were minutes into their fishing jaunt. Pond left his pole at home because he needed to repair it but went along for the fun. The two friends often come to fish there as it is one of their favorite pastimes, they said. They really...

"The legend of the trout's sagacity ... arises from man's conceit. If the trout can outwit us, the lords of creation, he must be superior to us in cunning." -P.B.M. Allan "You want to fish the deadwater Friday," Gifford said. "I was thinkin we could try that in the morning and then maybe catch the evening rise on the river," he added as an enticement. "Friday's good for me, Giff. Let's do it!" I said. One of my favorite fishing partners, Gifford Stevens of Bradley, is a skilled angler...

What happened to the king salmon run in Alaska may be remain a mystery, but what's known for sure is a popular fishery has closed because of a dismal return. So weak is the Deshka River run that biologists said they fear it could be as much as 70 percent off its goal of 13,000 in-river spawners, the Anchorage Daily News reported. From the opening of the first fishery in the region, things have been slow, sports fish biologists said. The Copper River near Cordova started behind schedule in...

In the last week I have observed a fish in the Avon, at the bridge by the boat sheds, which I believe is a salmon. I put its weight at between 5kg to 7kg. It was also seen by one of my workmates. I noticed it later in the week, and it seemed to have deteriorated in condition. Was this because of pollution in the river? Is this one of the salmon which has returned after release into the river some years ago? If salmon do run in the Avon, will our rates go up, to match the rates of the salmon...

Brown Trout, Salmo trutta
2013-10-15 12:46:40

The Brown Trout (Salmo trutta) is originally a European species of salmonid fish. It includes both purely freshwater populations, referred to Salmo trutta morpha fario and S. trutta morpha lacustris, and anadromous forms referred to as the sea trout, S. trutta morpha trutta. The latter migrates to the oceans for the majority of its life and returns to freshwater only to spawn. The specific handle trutta comes from the Latin trutta, meaning, literally, “trout”. The lacustrine morph of...

Australian salmon are medium-sized perciform marine fish of the small family Arripidae. Four species are recognized, all within the genus Arripis; they are found in the waters off southern Australia (including Tasmania) and New Zealand. Despite the common name, Australian salmon are not related to the salmon (family Salmonidae) of the Northern Hemisphere; the former were named so by early European settlers after their superficial resemblance to the salmoniform fishes. Relatively long-lived...
