This species of trout is a rare gem. It is a threatened species. It is officially designated as Arizona's state fish, and was historically found only in the headwaters of the White, Black and Little Colorado Rivers above 5,900-feet elevation in east-central Arizona. However, they have been introduced into other rivers and lakes and have managed to breed successfully. They still are competing with nonnative trout like browns, rainbows, and cutthroats for resources. Like most trout, they feed on aquatic and terrestrial insects and invertebrates.
