I am a reporter with the Yellowknifer Newspaper in
Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. I am interested in
learning more about the Hairy Trout.
Do you have any more information about it?
I am also
interested in discovering any more zoological creatures that
can be found north of the 60th parallel. Do you know of any?

The story of the Fur Bearing Trout can also be found at the
Museum of Hoaxes website. It was created by Ross Jobe, of
Saulte St. Marie, Canada. The only other real life arctic
creatures that come to mind are the newly discovered giant 2'
starfish and jellyfish with 25' tentacles found recently near
the North Pole.
Here is an excerpt
from the Museum of Hoaxes.
Trout is a species of fish that possesses a thick coat of fur
to keep itself warm in the cold waters where it lives. These
furry fish are primarily found in the northern regions of
North America, but particularly in Canada, Colorado, Wyoming,
and Montana. The species is also sometimes referred to as the
Beaver Trout, or (incorrectly) as the Sabled Salmon. Read more
