For our last Big Muddy Speaker Series of the year (on Christmas Eve Eve!) we’ll be treated to a special theatrical romp by Lewis and Clark reenactor and author Rolland Love.
Rolland playing the role of Private Silas Goodrich, who was the most accomplished fisherman on the Lewis and Clark expedition. Although Goodrich didn’t keep a journal of his perspective, the diaries of Captains Lewis and Clark captured a few of Goodrich’s fishing highlights, including catching catfish weighing up to 150 pounds. He also caught species never recorded before, including the cutthroat trout.
