Misunderstanding about the mountain whitefish is perhaps part of the reason why they’ve garnered mild interest from most anglers. Their appearance at the end of a fly line is often greeted with disappointment by anglers who thought they’d hooked a more sought-after cutthroat. Historically, that lack of angler interest has been a non-starter for fisheries managers, who paid relatively little attention to Prosopium williamsoni, even though it’s the most well distributed native salmonid in the Rocky Mountains.
