From Library Journal

This volume's ordinary-sounding title masks a unique compilation by some of North America's foremost fishery personnel, biologists, and conservationists. Not written from the sportsperson's perspective, but of ultimate relevance to anglers and naturalists alike, it covers trout ancestry, physiology, environment, and habits. A section on the 13 distinct trout species found in the United States comprises nearly half of the book. A useful bibliography of over 700 items enhances its value. Despite efforts to ensure readability, the book is essentially technical and provides more information than most anglers will want. However, it is rare that libraries have the opportunity to purchase such a comprehensive work on a topic of enduring interest. Medium and large libraries catering to either anglers or naturalists should consider.
