Road Creek Rod and Gun Club

A fish run sits empty on the Leavitt family’s Road Creek Rod and Gun Club in Loa, Utah. The family’s fish facility is ending production after employing as many as thirty people. According to ranch manager Gary Hallows, the fish facility is closing due to competition from Idaho hatcheries, and this run was never contaminated with the fish parasite known as whirling disease. The club continues to serve hunters and fishermen.

Rancher Kash Winn

Kash Winn is a rancher from Ferron, Utah, running cattle on BLM land in the San Rafael Swell (which stretches out behind him). Following in his father’s footsteps and living on the land he grew up in, Winn says finding a profit in ranching is becoming nearly impossible. In fact, he has begun working construction to supplement his family’s income. A new campaign would allow Winn to sell his grazing permits to either the government, other ranchers, or environmental groups. Winn is debating selling his permits, with the government or another rancher being his first choices.
