12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel

An angler casts on the waters of Yellowstone Lake, hoping to catch (and release!) some cutthroat trout. The trout have been declining in recent years due to the invasion of lake trout, which eat young cutthroat trout. An undertaking by the National Parks Service to remove the trout via fishing has had some success.
