FlyFishingPoint brings a wide range of very exciting articles on their website, this one is about the Apache trout.
The Apache Trout once swam the length of Mogollon Plateau, stretching from Western Arizona into Eastern New Mexico. Black spotted, on a background of butter-gold, like someone took a Sharpe and dotted a gold bar, the Apache trout is a spectacle to behold. Feisty when hooked known to leap more than look, the Apache will commonly tail dance across the water when fooled by an anglers well placed imitation. Fighting with the gusto of a much larger fish trapped in its little brother's body, a sizable Apache will measure in between fifteen to sixteen inches, most not clearing the foot mark. There are a few larger exceptions, if you know the right places to look, holding sizable specimens extending to and past the twenty inches.
One of those places to look is a "pay-to-play" lake called Christmas Tree on the White Mountain Apache reservation located east of Show Low Arizona. Permits are purchasable for per day at the Hon-Dah Ski and Fish shop located in Hon-Dah Arizona.
