“Dennis Dauble has created a guidebook not only for anglers but for anyone who wants to peer into the liquid soul of the Interior.”
– Jack Nisbet, author of Sources of the River and The Collector
“I wish this book had been in my tackle box when I moved to the Northwest 30 years ago.”
– Rick Larson, Managing Editor, Tri-City Herald
“The breadth of ecological information presented in this volume is remarkable, placing this title firmly in the ‘must have’ library of the avid fisherman rather than the casual angler.”
– Andrea Green, The Entertainer Extra
“Dennis Dauble has taken a lifelong passion for fish, placed it in a historical context and laid the groundwork for a fish-informed public. He conveys the enthusiasm scientists have for fish, gives you the background to appreciate fish diversity and asks you to join him.”
– Douglas F. Markle, Professor Emeritus, Department of Fishes and Wildlife, Oregon State University.
“Fishes of the Columbia Basin is not so much a guide to fishing spots, as a handbook providing the background to understand fishing the region, from aquatic food webs to the role of water temperature in habitat. It is both a book you will read for pleasure and include in your tackle box.”
– Tim Steury, Washington State Magazine
