Trout Study Volunteer Dies After Rattlesnake Bite

A fly fisher participating in a study of native steelhead trout species died after being bitten by a large rattlesnake Wednesday.
“William ‘Skip’ Price, reportedly an avid fly fisherman, was wearing water sandals when he was bitten on one foot by the rattler along Boulder Creek, said Gary Strawn, of Santee. Strawn said Price stopped breathing within minutes, so Strawn and others in the group performed CPR for 20 minutes until paramedics arrived.” Pauline Repard on
