Where I want to fish, the rulebook says the limit for trout is six. And the limit for bass is six. So, is six the total limit of fish I can keep?



No, in this case you can keep six trout and six bass for a total of 12. Limits apply to each species of fish. You need to check for special rules for the place you are fishing. If there are no special rules in the exceptions pages then general rules for trout and bass apply. Please note the general rule for bass is 6 fish, none under 12 inches.
