WHITE NOSE PETE



White Nose Pete was a mythical brook trout that was said to live in the Upper Dam Pool. Whenever a fisherman lost a fly to a big fish, it was said to be White Nose Pete. White Nose got his name from all the stolen flies that filled his mouth. Shang Wheeler, a famous carver from Connecticut and frequent visitor to Upper Dam, carved this likeness of the huge trout. He presented it to Wallace Stevens, Carrie’s husband. This is one of the most important items that is currently available for donation to the Museum in the name of a future major supporter.
