|Title||Rita Roberts fishing for trout, July 1941 |
|Caption||Mountain streams in Washington state are home to rainbow trout, cutthroat, brook trout and other species of game fish. The sports pages commonly included news about local sports fishing. A photograph of someone holding up 'the big one' often appeared with the fishing update. In July 1941, a Seattle Post-Intelligencer photographer snapped this photo of Rita Roberts catching a trout in an unidentified Washington stream. Although this picture never appeared in print, it portrays a Northwest tradition in jeopardy today. |
