June 23rd-Plenty of Sunshine
Plenty of sunshine is on tap for Yellowstone country for the next couple of days and everyone here is ready for it. It is going to be a glorious next couple of days, I can think of no better way to take it all in than on a river somewhere. We will be on the Henry’s Fork and Madison for sure soaking in the rays and trying to fool a few fish along the way. Hebgen is almost nearing full pond (99.6% as of yesterday) and the ghosts of Hebgen Dam have begun to raise to outflow. Look for the Madison to feel the effects of increased flow over the next couple of days. With warmer weather, increased flows, and the ever diminishing month of June, the venerable salmonflies should begin to make an appearance soon. These large flying morsels have already been spotted in the Beartrap which usually means we are within a week of seeing these beasts in the Upper Madison above Ennis. Things are getting ready to explode into summer action here, and we hope everyone is buckled in!
