The St. Joe River is famous for it’s clean water and bounty of native westslope cutthroat trout, such as this one being reeled in by a fly fisher in the river’s roadless section. To get there, Outdoors editor Rich Landers and David Moershel of Spokane had to invest some sweat and on blood lost to feasting insects as they hiked the trails for four days. Idaho regulations require that all cutthroat trout caught by anglers on the St. Joe River must be immediately released.
