This weekend, Basalt's Gold Medal trout streams will get a workout when the town hosts the US National Fly Fishing Championships. Twelve teams of five members each will compete on five different venues. Each team will be provided with the same boats and gear to level the playing field. Winners will be determined by the number and cumulative length of the fish they catch, although the event is catch-and-release.
