    Description

    In this little stream, the trout are more abundant than we have yet seen them. One of our sober men took, this afternoon, upward of thirty pounds. These fish would probably average fifteen or sixteen inches in length, and weigh three-quarters of a pound; occasionally, however, a much larger one is seen." This passage from the journal of John Townsend, a trader delivering goods to mountain fur trappers (Townsend, in Trotter and Bisson 1988), describes the Bear River in Wyoming and refers to the native Bonneville cutthroat trout.
