TIGHT LINES

For 50 years I have been both fascinated and concerned about a beautiful and extremely rare little purple trout, the Paiute Cutthroat Trout, (Salmo Clarki Seleniris). Paiutes could well be the rarest trout in the world. They are so rare because they are native to only one section of one stream in the entire world. I'd say that's pretty rare. Paiutes were originally found isolated between two waterfalls on a stretch of Silver King Creek, is a tributary of the Carson River in a remote section of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
