Welcome to another edition of our weekly(ish) 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, it’s an all-new quiz about fly-fishing states and their official fish species. How many do you know? Can you guess the others?
On the last quiz, there was just one perfect scores, achieved by Nico Sunseri, who noted (correctly) that it “Pays off to know your geography!” Just three respondents scored 90%—John McGee, Dave F., Sean—and the most common score fell to 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 Chris, who was with the “most common” crowd.
So post your score below for a chance at this awesome prize.

70% with a few lucky guesses!
I take these quizzes whenever the opportunity presents itself and this is my 1st time getting 100%, perseverance pays off!
40% Not so good.
40 % not even good at guessing
40% at least I got my state right
have to study up on my state fish 60%
70%, and although I live in Maine, I thought the Brook Trout was the state fish rather than the Atlantic Salmon
50%. I got to the end thinking I had a shot at 100%. I guess I was wrong about more things than one.
70% and the Maine state fish is actually the landlocked salmon. I guess technically a landlocked salmon is an Atlantic salmon, and I didn’t miss the question so I’m really just nitpicking.
90 percent. Some lucky guessing
For those that picked Brook trout for Maine. A small consolation.
“Maine also recognizes two state “heritage fish” symbols: eastern brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) – adopted in 2005, and blueback charr (Salvelinus alpinus oquassa) – adopted in 2007.”
60%. forgot Atlantic Salmon were once plentiful in Maine
70% some lucky guesses
70%. Where was Minnesota, land of 10,000 lakes, 4 million licensed anglers, 800 miles of trout streams?
40% and everyone were guesses!
100%! Thanks, Wikipedia!
50%. Thought that read “What should be the state fish of Maine”!
40% correct. 100% guesses.
40%… I got my home state’s fish though!
Ha! 80% surprised m’self.
70%…should have gone with my first thought on a couple.
60% par for the course..
20% never done that bad before
50%…channel cats, NC? Really?
No. Channel BASS.
80% I was surprised about Maine. . .
60% I’m happy with that
100% I really like studying state fish so this was a fun quiz!
30%- THAT WAS INTERESTING
100 percent, some lucky guesses. About the only Atlantic Salmon in Maine are in the Federal Fish Hatchery. Sad all those rivers continue to decline. Even the mighty Penobscot.
60% which isn’t so bad considering I guessed at every question. Honestly, didn’t know states had official fish.
40%….beat the odds!
60% not bad for guessing! The only one I thought I knew turned out to be wrong…
20% Had to guess on every question. A sad “state” of affairs!
i am not even trying, it is an all guessing game 🙂
50%. FL should be snook and largemouth.
40%… did not see that coming.
To hell with the “tests”, I’m going fishing.
not so good 50%
50% – Clearly there are a number of states that have incorrectly identified the state fish. If they had checked with me first, I would have been perfect.
You scored 50%!
70%…could have been worse…
I at least have heard of all of the states in the quiz!
80% lots of lucky guesses
50% – Got my state right and few others!
You scored 60%!
70% good day
50% – I love those MI brookies
30%, great quiz!
100%. I had just finished discussing this topic last week with a friend. Weird. Still took a complete guess on a couple, but guessed right in this instance.
You scored 70%!
Honestly, wasn’t confident about any answers.. 40%
