Colorado’s last remaining pure genetic Greenback Cutthroat population lives in Bear Creek, which is about 20 minutes Southwest of Colorado Springs, has become a top priority for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. A native trout that was once thought extinct is making a comeback due to the hard work of Cheyenne Mountain’s Trout Unlimited branch as well as our very own CPW. This is a great story that deserves the attention of all local and non-local anglers!
As anglers who love to fly fish we fully support all conservation efforts to help keep our native trout alive. To everybody involved– keep up the strong work!
