Take an All-New Phil Monahan Fly-Fishing Trivia Challenge 09.08.16

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%!


Post your score and you could win a cool fly selection.

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.

Good luck!

    1. I take these quizzes whenever the opportunity presents itself and this is my 1st time getting 100%, perseverance pays off!

  1. 70%, and although I live in Maine, I thought the Brook Trout was the state fish rather than the Atlantic Salmon

  2. 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.

  3. 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.”

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
