The Apache trout is closely related to the salmon and is one of the Pacific trout. Not only that, but it’s Arizona’s state fish, and is only one of two species of trout that come from that state. The Apache trout gets its name from the prominent Indian tribe located in Arizona. Also, because the fish was endangered during the mid-20th century, the White Mountain Apache Tribe was the first people to start conservation efforts. Are you a proud Arizonian or just like to angle? Both? Great, because this cool one piece for you!
If you are lucky enough to catch a pure Apache Trout then kudos to you. Due to their critically endangered status and hybridization with rainbow trout it is almost impossible to catch an Apache Trout. Luckily, with this fishing Romper you won't have to physically catch one! If you do manage to catch one, throw it back because we want to conserve the natural beauty of this elusive fish!
