An angler casts for fish below a rock wall in a pool of the Clarks Fork River. (Daniel Kenah/WyoFile)

The heat of summer has subsided, ushering in gorgeous fall Wyoming days and prompting many to venture outside. 

Such as this angler, who was photographed on Sept. 10 casting for fish under a beautiful rock wall in a deep pool of the Clarks Fork River north of Cody. 

The river was low and slow on that day, and the fisherman told photographer Daniel Kenah that he had only caught a few little trout. 

But with views that pretty, the question is: Does the size and quantity of the catch really matter?

  1. Great shot. Looks like the North Fork of the Shoshone not the Clark’s Fork of the Yellowstone, unless you were way up canyon… not that I am asking for the exact location of someone’s favorite fishing hole …. where in the canyon is this?

  2. Thank you, Katie and WyoFile, for a peaceful image and philosophical question! A good way to start the day.
