    That's really cool! With any luck, they'll thrive and offer an amazing fishery.

    So this projection is based on climate warming, and it is going 50 years in the future?

    I think that the brown trout could be looked on as the invaders as the smallmouth are native to that part of the U.S while the Browns were imported from Europe. I have fished streams where they co-exist often and I believe a healthy stream can sustain good populations of both species.
    No one is making more water. Use what we have wisely.

    Why worry? They are just a big sunfish anyway. While it may not be popular to say, smallies do taste good too!
