“Between the years 1991 and 2011 the total number of trout anglers declined by over 21 percent despite a national population increase of 26 percent during the same period for persons 16 years and older. In 1991 there were 9.1 million trout anglers compared to 7.2 million trout anglers in 2011. Looking at the changes between Survey periods, the number of trout anglers declined by one percent between the years 1991 and 1996, 13 percent between the years 1996 and 2001, and 14 percent between the years 2001 and 2006. The latest survey however showed a reversal of this trend. The number of trout anglers increased by six percent between 2006 and 2011.”
