    OUT THE DOOR

    the meadow is dry
    The Fish Are Waiting
    MAYBE TODAY
















    -- The photos above show the Grayling pools on the upper Gibbon River. The water is back in it's banks, and there was a report by the Grayling research team that several fish were seen here.
    -- Just a brief note before our Grayling quest continues. There are good reports from Greebe Lake. The Grayling are still on the bite, the meadow is mostly dry, and the fish are near the shore and taking flies all day. We just might have to hike in and gather up a few. Only, however, if we miss them at the pools shown above.
    -- Note #1; Beautiful picture of a Firehole River Rainbow at THE TROUT UNDERGROUND.
    -- Note #2; The PMD's are finally appearing in reliable numbers on the Madison River around National Park Meadow, and down to the talus slope pull-out. Try J.D. Miller's EZ PMDmerger, for a fly that will fish well for the whole hatch.
    -- Note #3; The rivers in the northern part of Yellowstone National Park are high, but clear and coming into shape rapidly. Visit Rocky Mountain Fly for some insight on the rivers in the northern part of Yellowstone..
    -- Note #4; The Firehole River is spiking to 78 degrees in mid-day. Fish early and late and the temp. is O.K. Fish 'between the bridges' in Biscuit Basin, or at the confluence of Nez Perce Creek for cooler water. There were some folks on Iron Spring Creek - so the fish are beginning their travels to cooler water. Get your Firehole River fishing in soon; it's about to become tough.
    -- Note #5; We are out the door - biscuits and gravy first; then a Grayling.
