Retired and fit at 78, Pat Marcuson is a rock star among fishermen familiar with his work in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness.
Backcountry anglers who don’t know of his contributions simply reap the benefits from his career and guidebook, “Fishing the Beartooths.”
The fisheries scientist devoted around 180 days a year from 1967-82 to surveying and hydrographing 989 lakes. The resulting trout management plan he drew up continues to provide one of the country’s standout backcountry fishing experiences.
