    WDFW reports that high levels of Mountain Dew, Cheetos, and chrystal meth in the Skykomish system have caused some interesting fish mutations.

    Catthroat. A gunnysack of kittens wasn't properly tied off by one of the locals a few years ago and sure enough the hybrids started to show up. Good eatin.'

    There's also been rumors of catbows, and a few cattybrownbows in downstream reaches.
