  • Pat Marcuson is known among anglers for his work in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness. “The fisheries scientist devoted around 180 days a year from 1967-82 to surveying and hydrographing 989 lakes,” writes Rich Landers. “The resulting trout management plan he drew up continues to provide one of the country’s standout backcountry fishing experiences.” Via The Spokesman-Review.
