We travel to the high desert country of Washington State to track down rumors of a trickle of water in the barren scab lands. Created by the flood waters of Lake Missoula during the last ice age, Douglas Creek follows a sinuous path through farm fields and beaver ponds before it cuts a gorge through hundreds of feet of volcanic tuft and basalt. Home to remnant populations of cutthroat trout that were stocked decades ago, Douglas Creek's fish populations are now largely forgotten. We spotted fish and evidence of fishing on this day, but very poor visibility prevented capturing quality video of trout in the desert. This is snorkel unconventional for sure!
