In North America, the six main types of trout are the brown, brook, rainbow, steelhead, cutthroat, and lake. The rainbow, steelhead, and cutthroat are prized because of their spectacular leaps and great fighting ability. The brook trout is another spirited fighter and is also a favorite among fishing enthusiasts. Young anglers are offered the full details about fishing for trout, including proper clothing and equipment to use for the sport and tips about water safety. They learn about fishing rods and reels, swivels, tackle, and bait, and how to identify trout species. Overfishing, water pollution, and the loss of natural habitats are among the worst problems for fish, and readers consider the ways federal, state, and provincial governments are working together to protect the environment and fishing areas. Catch-and-release and other regulations are explained, as well as cleaning and cooking tips. Sidebars provide intriguing tidbits of information, including handling a tagged trout, mercury and fish consumption, and trout stamp programs.
