Robert J. Behnke - Rocky Mountain Flycasters Research Fellowship
The Robert J. Behnke - Rocky Mountain Flycasters Research Fellowship is an annual scholarship originally funded by the Rocky Mountain Flycasters Chapter of Trout Unlimited, in honor of Dr. Behnke’s longtime chapter membership and his devotion to the study and appreciation of native trout and salmon. The Fellowship is awarded annually to provide an opportunity for a Colorado State University graduate student to study significant fisheries issues.
The Fellowship was endowed in 2007 with a generous gift from Professor Behnke and the chapter continues to make an annual contribution.
Despite his passing in 2013, Professor Behnke is still widely recognized and referenced as the world’s foremost expert on North American trout and salmon species. He authored several books, including “Trout and Salmon of North America”, “About Trout: The Best of Robert J. Behnke from Trout Magazine”, “Native Trout of Western North America”, and more than 100 scientific articles. See also the wikipedia.org entry.
