Mayflyman- Good to see you posting again! For a while there I thought that I'd be going to New Zealand on a shoestring budget by myself.......
The apache trout is a delicate resource. It's like the canary in the coal mine, a harbinger of bad things to come when the population swoons. Lets hope this reversal means that good things are to come.

Apache trout of AZ
This true Mayflyman, the Apache trout is coming on strong. I love to fish for them as they love to hit dry flies. My favorite stream in the White Mtns is the Black River. It is overflowing with Apaches. They are a beautiful fish and they arent' too bright, they will hit almost anything. My two cents. Drifly

I was reading in a nature magazine today (wildlife) that the apache trout is slated to come off of the endangered list in 2002.
It is Arizona's state fish and only found amidst the rivers and streams of the White Mountains in Arizona.
The apache trout now has a strong-hold on a whopping 150 miles of streams, almost 70% more than a decade ago.
Hats off to the good people of Arizona for saving this wonderful fish.
