June 8th 2008-Let’s get ready to Rumble!!!
A fresh dusting of snow has greeted our first guests of the 2008 “summer” season. So far this June we have had either rain or snow every day, and this reminds me of the good old days, where we got over 20 days in June with precipitation. All this cloudy, nasty weather, is making run-off trickle down and pretty much guaranteeing good streamflows all season long. The surrounding mountain ranges are simply beautiful, and the green meadows, dotted with glacier lillies and a dusting of snow is quite picturesque. The weather forecast is for more of the same this week, so break out your rainjackets and micro-fleece, and gaze into your mayfly box, for the hero fly this week is going to be a PMD imitation. The Firehole should be heavy with PMD’s this week and you can be sure that we will be sharing this treasure with Firehole Ranch guests this week. Box Canyon should also be good as salmonflies have started to shake the air with the beat of their clumsy wings. Warm River to Ashton on the Fork should also continue to fish the rest of this month (and with all this water, probably all summer, YEA!), with PMD’s beginning to show this week too! Today is also the official start of the Firehole Ranch Annual Whitefish Bonanaza. Keep in tune to the blog for this event all summer long! So grab your rod and let’s hit the water!!
