“It was a 19-inch Colorado River Cutthroat. Caught on a dry fly. In public water.”
Kirk Deeter of Fly Talk shares a recent trip to the Colorado’s White River in this two-part travelogue. The White River recently landed on the “Best Wild Places of 2011,” a list created by Field and Stream in collaboration with Trout Unlimited.
Deeter discovers an area where “there’s still a palpable ‘Old West’ authenticity.” He also discovered large cutthroat, both in the South Fork of the White River and in Trappers Lake, one of the state’s largest mountain lakes.
