Today our destination is the 12 States in the Western Native Trout Challenge with trout challenge completers, Ben and Oliver Sheridan, Phoenix, Arizona. Previously a guide on the Upper Delaware, Ben decided to tackle the Trout Challenge to spend time with his teenage son, Oliver. After 3 years and thousands of miles, Ben has completed all 3 levels of the trout challenge, netting an impressive 18 species of trout in 12 different states. His son Oliver is the first to complete stages 1 and 2 of the challenge, catching 12 species in 8 states.
Together, they’ve encountered moose and bears, remote alpine lakes, dangerous mountain roads, large rivers, and tiny streams chasing trout from Alaska to Arizona to California to Colorado. Stick around to the end for great technical tips, top fly patterns, and why they embarked on this journey.
