A Clean, Well-Lighted Stream

Front Cover
A celebration of fishing the steelhead trout from California to Oregon, this book gives witness to the pleasures of the outdoorsman and the camaraderie of those who have pursued a prize grudgingly accorded on occasion to those who love the chase. The flavor of the trail, the camp, and the sheer exuberance of the untainted air and uninhabited banks are brilliantly rendered.
