The Gila Trout
This is the first time I have ever looked into the history of the Gila and after a brief Google search I was able to see just how much color this trout sports. It truly is a beautiful fish and a worthy species to protect.
This New Mexico and Arizona native once had a range through most of the Gila river and its tributaries but in the late 60's their range had shrunk to a mere 20 miles. Today they now enjoy a healthier habitat in over a dozen protected streams near and including the native Gila River.
