May 20th-Warm Weather
I hope everyone is getting psyched up for the summer season. We have officially started opening the Firehole Ranch, digging out from feet of snow, clearing water lines, and shaking off winter’s dust. We have had a burst of beautiful and very warm weather, thoughts of summer are filling the air. Yellowstone’s fishing season, and Idaho’s general fishing season, both open this saturday, and this has always been traditionally the “beginning of the summer season”, from a fishing standpoint. However, we are knee deep (quickly going to waist deep) in run-off. I will try to post photos soon of the rivers to give everyone an idea of what it is like right now. Because of the late run-off, I am expecting that when the first week the Firehole Ranch is open we are going to have some fantastic fishing. 3 to 4 weeks ought to be perfect timing for rivers such as the Firehole and Henry’s Fork to come into perfect fishing shape. Think PMD’s, caddis, PMD’s, Green Drakes, and PMD’s for June (throw in a few salmonflies too!).
