A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I traveled to Spotted Horse Ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on vacation. We fished with guide Dan Poole for three days, and he knew exactly where to find these beautiful fish.

The first two days of our trip, we had a fantastic time fishing with dry flies on the Snake and the Salt Rivers. On the third day, one of the other guests at the Spotted Horse Ranch gave me a streamer that he said would attract the bigger cutthroats. He was right. Fishing with a streamer was more work with continual casting and stripping in, but it was definitely worth it.
