Introducing the Catskills Trout Tales Passport

What are the stories that you’re finding…creating…stumbling upon…loving the Catskills? Where are the tales that you’re creating in this place, this wandering, and in yourself?

The Catskills Trout Tales Passport includes a collection of words and evocative drawings by the Catskills’ own artist/philosopher/farmer Steve Burnett, with plenty of room for you to record your own thoughts, drawings, and memories of your Catskills adventures. Printed passports are available at the Catskill Interpretive Center in Mount Tremper, and various other locations around the Catskills. Or you can download your own copy here to print and bring with you.

Want to share your passport entries with the world? Whether it’s a true story, a poem, or even a caption for one of Steve’s cartoons… just upload your musings in the form below, and watch for them on the Stories page, and on social media.
