The Beartooths Are Calling

greenough-lake.jpgI just stumbled across a wonderful site that makes me want to hasten spring a bit. The Beartooth Mountains have always held the hiker-fisher in their thrall, (me too.) I was there once and only spent a single night under the cold clear sky. Next year, I shall get there again.

The site: Fishing The Beartooths is astonishing in it’s completeness and is very ambitious. From kids fishing to a reader’s forum, this site, (I think it’s brand new,) bears watching. There are sections on where to fish, GPS information, a gear section and contests.

The site was listed in the Outdoor Section of the Billings Gazette, and is run by Jesse Roberts, the office manager at Big Bear Sporting Goods. This quote from the introduction outlines ithe agenda:

“. . . It won’t be an easy task for the office manager at the Billings Big Bear sporting goods store. The Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Area encompasses 930,000 acres and has more area above 10,000 feet in elevation than any other in the United States, according to the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks. Narrowing his research is the fact that although the mountain range contains more than 900 lakes, 600 of them are barren of fish. Undaunted, Roberts has already outlined his summer vacation schedule – hiking trips to 52 lakes.”

Energy abounds!
