June 23rd 2008-Coming Down, Kinda…

Hey Everybody, what a beautiful 10 days we have had. Sunny and 70, could it be much better. Such a long winter, and a cold spring, and everybody here is soaking up the sun. The symphony of birdsong is incredible and I think our winged friends are lovin’ this summer weather as much as we are. The Mule’s Ear and Narrowleaf Balsam Root are in full bloom, causing fields and hillsides to turn yellow and white. I think it might be  an epic wildflower year. The area’s rivers are still quite high and even slightly off color, but the fishing is chugging right along with the flows. The Madison has been very solid in the wade stretches, with numerous nice ones falling for the old SJW trick. The H-Fork is also fishing well, as the hatch cycle begins to wind up. A few Green Drakes were spotted down low, and PMD’s are in full swing. The Firehole is also holding steady with good caddis and PMD’s. A few salmonflies remain on the Maddy in the Park, and the Gibbon is starting to fish with large attractors and beadhead nymphs. Fishing continues to improve on a daily basis, and soon it is going to totally let loose, and it is going to be quite hard to decide where to go, because there will be so many possibilities. Fish On!
