A web map showing the complete distribution of Apache Trout is available here.
Apache Trout, a subvariant of the Gila Trout, today inhabit a tiny range tucked away in the White Mountains of east-central Arizona, roughly 135 miles east-northeast of Phoenix. Apache National Forest was badly burned in this fire (the White Mountain Apache Reservation less so, particularly in the sacred area which is closed to fishing by non-tribe-members). As a result, many streams formerly open to fishing are currently (2015) closed.
We’ve tried to identify current open and closed areas consistent with current AZ and tribal regulations as of May 2015. Open areas are shown as light green. Many are subject to special regulations: please check current regulations before planning a trip as these restrictions have been changing with new restoration work and as populations either become established or remain stressed.
If you’d like to see the burn area, click on the “Layer” control in the upper right of the web map, and check Wild Fires 2005-2013. Each triangle on the map corresponds to a “burn-day” detected by satellite sensors.
