September 13th, 2020 (Session 61) – Here is EP 2/3 of my 2020 Spokane, WA fishing trip! In this video, I explore and fish the Spokane River in Spokane, which falls under the “Selective Gear” rules & regulations!!! Watch EPF use single, and barbless hooks, for the first time ever. Heh. Read more about it below:

Did you know that…?

๐Ÿคจ…In the United States of America, the Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) is ONLY NATIVE to 5 states in the West Coast: Washington, Oregon, Idaho, California, and Nevada. And even within those states, there are areas where that species is native and areas where they are invasive (stocked). If you EVER CAUGHT a Rainbow Trout OUTSIDE OF THOSE FIVE STATES, it was AN INVASIVE RAINBOW TROUT!!! Keep it in mind that the Rainbow Trout is on the “100 of the World’s Worst Invasive Alien Species” list in our planet, along with the Walking Catfish (Clarias batrachus), the Common Carp (Cyprinus carpio), the Western Mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis), the Nile Perch (Lates niloticus), the Largemouth Bass (Micropterus salmoides), the Mozambique Tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus), and the Brown Trout (Salmo trutta).
๐Ÿคจ…There are at least 11 Sub-Species of the Rainbow Trout. They are all one species — the Oncorhynchus mykiss; however, they are genetically different on their own, and their ranges vary as well. Some examples include the Kamchatkan Rainbow Trout, the Coastal Rainbow Trout, the Columbia River Redband Trout, the Athabasca Rainbow Trout, the McCloud River Redband Trout, the Great Basin Redband Trout, the Eagle Lake Trout, the Kamloops Rainbow Trout, the Golden Trout (O. m. aguabonita — not to be confused with the mutated Golden Rainbow Trout), the Kern River Rainbow Trout, the Little Kern Golden Trout, the Mexican Rainbow Trout, etc.
๐Ÿคจ…as emphasized in the video, a stocked Trout is NOT the same as a wild Trout, which is NOT the same as a NATIVE Trout. A stocked Trout is born and raised in a hatchery. A wild Trout is a Trout born from stocked Trout parents, or within that lineage. A native Trout is a Trout born from Trout samples that were in that watershed/drainage way before humans arrived and Urban Sprawl happened.
