    Snow & An Early BWO


    .. The neighbors went out yesterday in the snow. It wasn't much of a snow, just a reminder of why we love it up here.
    ..They trotted up to Cabin Creek. The flow has slowed to a trickle, and between the Madison River and the road they found an unusual occurrence: Big Fish, BWO's, and no one else on the river. Snow does that to the visitors.
    .. The cooling has continued, the flows are slowing, and clearing is taking place at a pace to make us drool. Saturday is way too far away.
    .. We're tying up some Yellowstone Cinch's just in case June comes a week or two early on the Firehole River.
    .. If you intend to fish the opener in Yellowstone you should already have reservations at wader friendly lodgings. Remember that all the trout shops in West Yellowstone can put you on fish and sell you a Yellowstone Fishing Permit.
