Welcome to another edition of our (somewhat) 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’ve come up with another twenty (20!) new questions about the locations of famous fly-fishing rivers and lakes. How well do you know the sporting geography of this country?
The last quiz was another toughie, and there was just a single perfect score, achieved by perhaps our top quiz-taker of all time, Stephen Fitch. Let’s all give him a golf clap, along with one for Scott, who missed just one question, and Mark T, our sole 90%-er.
Two randomly chosen winners of this week’s quiz will receive a copy of the latest issue of Tail fly fishing magazine. Tail has been an online publication for four years, but the new issue is their first to go to print. It features great saltwater articles and photos, and it’s good news that we finally have another saltwater print publication to peruse.
The winner of our last quiz (as determined by random.org) was Todd, whose 40% was actually above average.
So post your score below for a chance at this awesome prize.

90% should have Ben 95 but I pressed the wrong button once…
30%. My typical score.
30%, ok time for something else.
Believe the Hoh River is in the Olympic Penninsula of Washington nears Forks…fished it many times….Oregon!!!

Fun. 80% I guess I thought the Hohwas in WA.

50%, probably my best on these “Where is the…” quizzes.

80%. Good quiz.
45% which is sadly better than last week
45%, guess I need to travel more
35%. I think that’s 5% above my average.
40% alt go I fat fingered a couple, choosing the wrong answer my mistake.
85, with one dumb mistake (I was thinking Harper’s Ferry instead of Less Ferry, I live in AZ by the way) and one challenge- the Fall River in MA heads in VT and joins the Connecticut R down stream from Turners Falls, and holds a lot of trout.
Well, I’ll be: there IS a Fall River in Western Mass. It isn’t listed as a trout river in the state DeLorme, and this is the first I’ve heard of it. Thanks for the tip, and give yourself another 5 points you got that one wrong.
You scored 70%!
Well now, 45% is not too bad for guessing on most of them!
Ugh! 30% Need to get around more.
35% on100% guesses.
