The Legend

Loading Quotes...


In a race for the very survival of his species, one lone fish prevailed. Fueled by fins and a wild desire, this dashing salmon from the Sawtooths faced a river odyssey. 900 miles. 8 dams. Untold odds. And the journey home. His wild desire could not be dammed.

In 2012, 20 years after his heroic solo return to Redfish Lake, Lonesome Larry is making a comeback. The most interesting fish in the world will be traveling throughout Idaho this summer and beyond to spread the appeal of his epic story. You never know where he’ll show up next.

Look for Lonesome Larry live at random locations and events all year long. If you spot him, snap a shot with your phone or camera. Then share the sighting on his blog, Facebookfan page or Twitter feed.
