This tail of two trout streams, written for Midcurrent by Tom Rosenbauer, is quite simply of of the best and most informative pieces of writing, on the subject of trout fishing, which I have ever encountered. It’s rare that you will have the opportunity to expand you knowledge of trout and their habitat so profoundly in one sitting.

There are few folks who speak as knowledgeably about trout as Tom. This is an article you don’t want to miss.

  1. Good choice for hightlighting, Louis.

    Tom Rosenbauer is my favorite trout fishing author for solid, practical information worthy of the time and money to invest in a whole book. I have a number of his titles, and Prospecting for Trout (from which this piece was excerpted) is my favorite Rosenbauer book. Every Rosenbauer book I have read has been useful to me, and two of them I have reread cover to cover a second time years later. The fact that Prospecting for Trout is 15 years old and this information is so relevant that Midcurrent would excerpt it speaks volumes about the quality of the work.

  2. The section of the article describing the hydrogeochemistry makes some of us boil because of its inaccuracies. If you skim off the poorly researched science, its a really good article for the average fisherman though. I’m not trying to take that away- the overall message is great. Not trying to be a douche, but there are some wicked poor statements made in this article in regards to crystallography/mineralogy/chemistry and stream response to pH buffering.
