    And So It Goes

    A GLORIOUS ENDING
    Sun Today - Rainy Snow Tomorrow
    our winter look
    .. For some unknown reason the weather gods have smiled on West Yellowstone and the western portion of Yellowstone. Clear days with plenty of sun and temperatures in the 40's have continued to bless us, (some minor flurries and drizzle punctuate the blessing.) Clear nights and -10's are also here, (the bears in town are fewer this year.)
    .. The guides freeze, the reel grease is it's own drag, and the fish are ravenous. The Gallatin River has slowed to a picture, the Madison River is still fishing very well, The Firehole River is blessed with Caddis in the sun & Baetis in the rain, and there are good fish near the road on the Gibbon River. This weekend may be the best fall fishing of the year - it's going to warm up and rain.
    .. We'll be posting less, (weekly or a bit more,) and from afar. There is fishing outside of Yellowstone National Park and we intend to explore it while we can. The winter in Yellowstone often provides news of planning, regulations changes, fish counts, and management decisions. We'll keep you updated.
