    YELLOWSTONE PARK HEATING UP - HERE COMES THE SUN

    ONLY ONE FOOT OF SNOW
    so far - a gentle melt

    IRON SPRING CREEK

    BLACK SAND BASIN




    -- So far the weather has been excellent for the fly fisherman. Only a little color in the downstream sections of the Madison River and the Gallatin River. There have been no warm - torrential down-pours, no warm and drippy drizzles, and early hatches have been prolific. The stream flows have been a bit higher than normal, but the gentle rise in water levels has been slow and steady.
    -- With just 24 days until Fly Fishing in Yellowstone opens the outlook is favorable for a productive early season. Fly fishers fly boxes should be organized by now, or within the next week, or so. If you haven't been fishing outside of Yellowstone, it's time to get the gear together too. Lunch, a flask, and a slicker should be planned for.
    -- The tailwater fishery between Hebgan dam and Quake Lake is fishing very good. Access is almost easy, and there are still a few spawners hanging around. Mostly Rainbows, and they are eating rubber legs, and Montana Dusters, (see below,) in pink and salmon.
