    FIRE

    CAN YOU SAY CALLIBAETIS
    Some Roads Closed

    .. The fire crews are still working to stomp the fire that roared north of town yesterday. The smoke is thick in the air. The whispers of gulper fishing are growing louder. The motor homes clog the streets. The car alarms are blaring. The borate bombers are still in the air. Just another day in paradise.
    .. Click on over to Fly Fisherman for a brief primer on gulper fishing and some flies that you may want. Hebgen Lake is the home of gulpers, and it's early this year - like everything else, including the fire.
    .. Hyalite Reservoir is producing Grayling and the tributaries open in a couple of weeks. We may just have to use the fish car to get this year's Grayling.
    .. This year's Montana Fish Wildlife & Parks web page is featuring the Grayling on it's header. You can see it HERE. They have also developed an invasive species logo, and a full page devoted to curtailing the spread of invasive species.
    .. Need some new sporting art for your wall? Check out the new works from J. Russell Jinishian.
    .. Time for biscuits and gravy, and news about the fire. The park fishing is shifting to a summer tempo and the visitors are streaming into wonderland early for the Fourth of July. Madness promises to be the norm. We'll post the quiet places to be tomorrow or the next day.
