FISHING IS ONE OF THOSE SPORTS that is just as satisfying when shared with friends and family as it is all by yourself.

Most fisherfolk even secretly hold the belief it’s almost as fun whether you catch anything or not — although some will never admit that. And, with catch-and-release becoming more prevalent these days, there is no longer the onus of feeling bad about killing a creature of the wild.

Rio Grande cutthroat, Gila, brown, brook and rainbow trout are the five species that you must catch to complete the challenge. The first four species are often found in small high mountain streams. The fish thrive in these fertile waters, feasting on a variety of insects throughout the year. They also survive in these small waters by being ellusive and wary of predators such as eagles, racoons, bears and anything else that might try to snatch them up. They are amazingly adept at detecting motion and potential threats.
