The Bear River rises in the high Uinta Mountains and flows through Wyoming, Idaho and Utah before emptying into the Great Salt Lake. Within the watershed are scores of secluded trout streams, dozens of reservoirs and one of North America’s largest populations of native cutthroat trout. Angler and author Chadd VanZanten offers a compelling portrait of the most extraordinary fly-fishing destinations you’ve never heard of. It’s also a story of embattled but resilient ecosystems, warring factions of the American West, a dash of San Francisco counterculture, cataclysmic upheavals of the planet itself and, of course, pursuing big, elusive trout.
