Since early childhood I have loved to explore the draw near my family's log home, where a little creek flows, fed by mountain snowmelt and a series of springs. Small waterfalls babble over mossy granite outcrops, and in the deeper pools beneath, the colorful brook trout dwell. They feed on the many larvae of caddisflies, stoneflies, mayflies, dragonflies, and other water creatures. In turn, the brook trout make great eating for the great blue heron, osprey, and the occasional human. However, I have only caught brook trout in order to save them when they became stranded in one of the last shrinking pools when a drought nearly dried up the creek. I caught the trout, who were struggling for breath, in my hands and transferred them in a bucket of water to a deeper, spring-fed pool. I released them and watched happily as their gills filled with oxygen and they wriggled into feeding position, heads upstream.
