Welcome to another edition of our sorta-kinda-weekly trivia challenge, in which we test your knowledge of all things fly fishing and where you might learn a thing or two about this sport we love. This week, we offer 10 brand-new questions about famous waters, book titles, trout patterns, and more.
On the last quiz, there were zero perfect scores, so let’s celebrate the four of you who scored 90%: Michael J, Nick B, Sean, and the ever-present Stephen Fitch. The most common score held steady at 50%.
The randomly chosen winner of this week’s quiz will receive his or her choice of an Orvis Fly Selection, featuring patterns chosen by Orvis-endorsed professional guides.
The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org) was Bob Teeden, who described his score as “a 50% tumble from last week.”
So post your score below for a chance at this awesome prize.

A sketchy 50%
10% Hanging my head in shame . . .
Rebounded from last week’s disaster up to a respectable 70%.
i knew that lightning bug…..10%
I got a 60%…
a sad 20%
Hitting the average. 50 %
30%, equally embarrassing to last week’s “f that.” but I did catch a nice trout today so there’s that.
50%.. Didn’t know one thing on there… I’m a professional guesser.
60 percent. Just crushing it. Yep.
30%. Thought I did better than that!
Scuffled to a 50%
80% for this quiz.
Ouch, 30% this week
not good 40%
80% this time
30% On a roll! Second week with a 30. Not getting very educated.
40% up from last week
My first attempt at one of Phil’s trivia challenges. An abysmal 30%. Better luck next time.
50% but question 4 asks pick the state that rainbows aren’t native to it said the only one out of the 3 was utah(Montana and Nevada were the others). Rainbows aren’t native to Montana either, I’m surprised no one else caught this, so I’m guessing there aren’t gonna be any perfect scores this week.
“Scientists believe that only the rainbow trout of the upper Kootenai River drainage are native to this state. This small group of natives are a Fish of Special Concern.” (https://fieldguide.mt.gov/speciesDetail.aspx?elcode=AFCHA02090)
Thanks Phil I had no idea as Montana fwp has always put rainbows on the nonnative list, I shoulda known that if there were any rivers they were native too it’d be in that far northwestern part of the state
50% Not again
Posted from the Orvis Fly Fishing App
90%. I didn’t think rainbows were native to Montana either.
60%. Not terrible I suppose
30%. Getting worse.
40%, Second guessed myself there too. Should have a 70.
thought I did great, but was wrong.
40% !! Hello darkness my old friend…
50% again. I’m sensing a trend.
80%, not too shabby, but some were guesses.
A sad, sad, 30%
very poor 50 %
60%! If you ever see me post 100% it will just be another of my fish stories!
60%. Big improvement over last week!
got half of them right!
A couple lucky guesses got me to 80% this week.
40% sliding my way downwards
An abysmal 30%, a Mariana Trench of a score.
60%. In other news I’ll be spending the next 9 days in YNP. That’ll help me feel better from a crummy score.
10%. Boom! Good thing I’m good looking…
60% ehm not the worst I could have scored but not so great.
60%. I thought there were only five species of Pacific salmon (because that’s all we have here in the Pacific Northwest), but looked it up after the quiz and discovered Masu salmon that live on the other side of the ocean. Interesting!
60% not worth a comment
60%…better but not great.
50% perfectly average
60%. Couple of the correct answers really surprised me.
Thought i did worst – 60%
40. But it’s all good. I’m fishing in northern New Mexico right now. My wife caught her first rainbow on a fly rod using a Lighteni g Bug that I had tied!
60% Not real good. Who’s O’Neil Forbay?
50% That’s just bad.
You scored 50%!
They say I scored 50% but I think I got 60. Pretty sure there are 5 speicies of Pacific Salmon, not 6. WWF agrees with me.
There are six species of Pacific salmon, but one, the cherry salmon, is not native to the U.S. and Canada. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oncorhynchus_masou)
Pretty much knowing nothing produced a 50%!
30% ouch! Great quiz!
But still having fun! 🙂
60% better than last week
6/10 for me
Icky, 40%. Missed every single guess.
10%. All time low.
another 40 yippie
30%. Ye gads.
40%…… may be time for another passion
Oh man i could only manage a 30%… rough
