I took the first trip of my life to Montana last summer. My main goal was to catch a Yellowstone cutthroat. I caught my first one in Slough Creek in the NE corner of Yellowstone National Park. It was not huge but a solid, beautiful and tough fighting cutthroat trout. With the “hoot owl” restrictions in effect in the park, I don’t have a photo as I released the fish without taking it out of the water. However, it is etched into my memory as a milestone in my flyfishing career.
