Casting into the Colorado from a ledge below Glen Can yon Dam, a fly-fisherman nets a 12-inch rainbow trout. Fishing is good, the author reports, both below and above the 710-foot high concrete plug and its neigh boring span, the world's highest steel-arch bridge. Lake waters abound in trout, largemouth bass, sunfish, and catfish. Air drops periodically restock the lake (pages 68-9). EKTACHROME(ABOVE)ANDKODACHROMES © N.G.S . Brazen nibbler, a green sun fish too small for the hook bites at the toes of a wader. Dawn. Driftwood crackles and fresh trout, dusted with corn meal, await the frying pan. The aroma proves almost more than hungry campers can bear. The previous night they spread sleeping bags on this wedge of sand beside the lake near Hole in the Rock (page 66). They awakened to a golden glow that routed the last of the stars, and breakfasted as the summer sun climbed above the jagged hori zon and enveloped the cove.
