" On my return, I found the RBF Pro Staffers at camp. They had butchered the buffalo and brought in some more meat, as I had directed. Wade Rivers had caught half a dozen very fine trout and a number of both species of the white fish. These trout (caught in the Falls) are from sixteen to twenty-three inches in length, precisely resemble our mountain or speckled trout in form and the position of their fins, but the specks on these are of a deep black instead of the red or gold color of those common to the U. States. These are furnished long sharp teeth on the palate and tongue, and have generally a small dash of red on each side behind the front ventral fins. The flesh is of a pale yellowish red or, when in good order, of a rose red. "

Reflecting some quality light and fine fishing.
A typical Missouri River hopper eater. I just hope Raisler doesn't raise those oars until I get out of the way if you know what I mean.

Another One Like the Other Ones
The quality of light in the Missouri River Basin is second to none in Big Sky Country.
