White River Travelogue

“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.
