Wyoming, August, 2001

The second week of August, Kyle Burrell, Duane Stalnaker and I spent a wonderful week in Wyoming.  While we were there, we all qualified for the "Wyoming Cutthroat Slam."  The Cut Slam is a conservation program instituted by the Wyoming Game and Fish Division to increase awareness of the four sub-species of cutthroat native to Wyoming: the Bonneville (once thought to be extinct), the Yellowstone, the Snake River and the Colorado River.  These subspecies evolved over the eons in separate drainages.  The sub-species are differentiated by the patterns of the spots.

We were also treated to wonderful vistas, wildlife and fellowship while we stayed with Butch Martin in the Green River Valley near Pinedale, WY.  We hope you enjoy the photos and plan your own trip in the near future.  Butch guides in the area and can be contacted at Unicoi Outfitters in Helen, GA during the winter:  flyfish@unicoioutfitters.com
