Last Best Streams.

The idea sprang out of an attempted bucket list and a deep dive through public records. The result: nearly 2450 unique streams, spread across all 50 states and Puerto Rico, chosen for their exceptional natural, recreational, or scenic value.

Some of them are brand-name, top tier fishing destinations. Most aren’t- some aren’t really fisheries per se, many are so small or obscure they probably couldn’t support on onslaught of internet visitors. I wouldn’t want them to. Part of the gratification of this sport stems from exploring, from finding things out on your own.

A year in and less than 1% of the list complete, I’m still learning how I want to approach this project. But I’m glad to take you along, see some parts of the world maybe you haven’t seen yet, either.
