Writing for Forbes magazine, Monte Burke creates a Top Ten list of U.S. “trout-fishing towns.” On the list: Glenwood Springs, Colorado, Roscoe, New York, West Yellowstone, Montana, Asheville, North Carolina, and Grayling, Michigan. “Grayling is the birthplace of Trout Unlimited, the sports’ biggest conservation organization. The Au Sable River, famous for its hatch of Hexagenia, the largest mayfly in the world, flows over a sandy bottom right through town.”
