Not many anglers have heard of the Trout Fantasy Slam but if you love fishing and looking for something fun to do this summer, this is for you. Any fisherman can do this with a little planning. To achieve this slam, an angler just has to catch five of the seven natural trout species in a single day. Those species are brown, bull, brook, cutthroat, golden, lake and rainbow trout. Finding any five in one body of water and catching at least one of each in a single day may prove difficult at best. It may be worth planning on traveling to 2 or 3 bodies of water during the day to increase you odds. Pick a few places where you are likely to catch the type of trout you are targeting and start early in the day. For more information on how you can participate, visit the International Game Fish Asssoction ( IGFA) Website. Utah also has a Cutthroat slam that you can participate in and win a medallion. These slams are a fun way to enjoy fishing and accomplishing something that not many people have done.
