New England Fall Fishing

New England Fall Fishing by Sean Obrien

Also protect  threatened Gila trout from interbreeding them out of existence.  The project, funded by a combination of state and federal grants, is one of many barriers that have been constructed throughout the American West.  Also to protect unique trout species with limited range.
