Once thought to be extinct, Colorado’s famed greenback cutthroat trout is in the process of making a remarkable comeback. There are now over 50 waters along the Colorado Front Range where fishermen can experience the thrill of catching this beautiful fish. Colorado Greenback Cutthroat Trout: A Fisherman’s Guide will tell you about the biology, history, and the amazing recovery of the greenback, along with information on where and how to catch this unique and colorful fish.

The survival of the greenback cutthroat now hinges on the combined efforts of state and federal agencies, wildlife organizations, and the volunteer work of numerous fishermen and citizens. This book is dedicated to those individuals and organizations, and to the premise that wild native trout such as the greenback are more than worth all of our conservation efforts.

Richard Fritz has been fly fishing throughout the United States for over 35 years. While growing up in northern Ohio, his father introduced him to small farm bass ponds as well as to the expansive trout and northern pike lakes in southern Ontario and Quebec, Canada. His fly fishing career began to fully develop during his years living in Bozeman, Montana. The big rivers in Montana and Wyoming provided a good training ground for his fishing adventures for steelhead and sea-run cutthroat during his years in Portland, Oregon. He has also had the opportunity to fish the limestone streams in Pennsylvania and surrounding states. His favorite fishing location, however, is Colorado. The state offers a wide-range of fishing challenges, good water is open year round, and the high mountain lakes are spectacular--both in scenery and for hungry trout. Mr. Fritz lives in Denver with his wife and two children.

Jim Rubingh grew up fishing the trout streams and creeks of southwestern Michigan. He began fly fishing when he moved west to Colorado in 1973 to pursue graduate degrees in biology and natural resource management and has been fly fishing the state's streams and lakes ever since. Beginning in the late 1980's he has been actively pursuing the greenback cutthroat along Colorado's Front Range. Jim served on Colorado's Fish Health and Aquaculture board for many years and has been a member of Trout Unlimited for some 25 years. He and his wife have grown children and live west of Denver.
