Fishing guide presents Wyoming cutt-slam
• The January meeting of the Grand Valley Anglers Chapter of Trout Unlimited and Federation of Fly Fishers will feature fishing guide Mike Kraul of Pinedale, Wyo., and Wyoming’s cutt-slam program.
The meeting is 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Piñon Grill at Tiara Rado Golf Club, 2057 So. Broadway.
Western Wyoming is home to four species of cutthroat trout and the Wyoming Department of Fish and Game offers the cutt-slam, catching each of the four species, as way to develop support for cutthroat trout management.
Kraul, a Federation of Fly Fishers certified casting instructor in addition to operating a respected guide business, will offer insights to the origin of the native trout, show their current venues, portray good cutthroat habitat and outline fishing tactics.
The meeting is open to any interested angler.
