High Country Cutthroat [Video]

It’s that time of year when the high country begins opening up. Those of us who eagerly await this part of the year are licking our chops, and some anglers are already venturing up to 8,000 feet to pursue cutthroat.

This video from Fresh Water Militia on YouTube is a beautiful, peaceful bit of work that captures the delicate elegance of high country cutthroat trout.
