Montana's Yaak River country is one of those places that you don't hear much about, but what you do hear is usually the stuff legends are made of. The watershed is home to native bull and redband trout and, as rumor has it, some large brook trout. It's remote, wild country - I've even heard tales of woodland caribou making occasional forays into the area.
I look forward to the day that I'm able to visit The Yaak, until then I'll continue to live vicariously through those who have experienced it. One such person is Tom Reed, who recently visited the region as part of a collaborative project between Trout Unlimited and Field & Stream entitled, "Best Wild Places". In a multi-part series, Tom is sharing his Yaak experience on the F&S website.
