I’ve been digging Will Jordan’s 111° West blog recently, especially the post on the mysterious big cutts of the creek, and it’s native fluvial arctic Grayling. Its a well written and detailed blog and it provides some good vicarious armchair/computer/cubicle angling pleasure. Photo and quote below.
Legend has it that the creek hosts a mysterious, almost ghostly run of very large cutthroat trout. What’s more, the rumor of this run is substantiated by sound, but antiquated, stream survey data compiled by fisheries biologists. My own trips to fish the creek have done little to sort out fact from fiction. Were it not for an occassional rare, unabashed report from fellow anglers, I’d probably have given up on the place long ago.
