The Snake River's Fine-Spotted Cutthroats

We went out and sampled the cutthroat fishing on the Snake River near Jackson Hole, Wyoming, last year and can report that what Charlie Meyers says about the “ethic” of cuttthroat pervading the area is true. There’s quite a culture there grown up around cutthroat habitat restoration, and it is not limited to anglers. “‘We went from 35 spring creeks to 12 in less than 10 years,’ [Jack Dennis] said of a time when the Snake River lost much of its spawning potential. “But now many of them have been restored. Some of the ranchers deserve a lot of credit for spending their own money to get them working again.'” In the Denver Post.
