In Search of Liquid Gold
Mikey Wier goes out on a soulful search in his home to his state of California for one of the rarest trout in North America.
“Our mission was to head deep into the headwaters of the Kern River basin in search of pure strain California Golden Trout. Unfortunately, many miles and two of the biggest passes in the Southern Sierra lay between us and there. Mt. Whitney and the tallest pass in California guards the way out. Our route included several miles on the John Muir trail then a detour into a remote basin that had been on the radar for Ballenger for a number of years.”
