, Flat Creek holds ‘fat fish’, Salmon Club Iceland

Wyoming Game and Fish fisheries biologists, technicians, and volunteers were electrofishing Lower Flat Creek just south of the fish hatchery on the National Elk Refuge, a stretch of river that gets hammered by fly fishermen from Aug. 1 to Oct. 31.

The goal: Determining just how many native Snake River fine-spotted cutthroat trout were dwelling in the deep pockets of river that, in some places, cut under the stream banks, providing excellent habitat for large, hungry cutties.

The answer: A lot. And not just a lot of fish. A lot of big fish. Possibly, the fattest fish ever.
