    Good Morning Snowshine

    FISH IN THE SNOW
    THE PARK IS BEAUTIFUL
    So Are The Baetis
    now is the time to join the 20/20 club
    (video included)
    .. There's 6" on the ground, it's warm, it's cloudy, it's snowing,it's time to fish! The drip of the late evening turned into real snow and there are even duns in Beautiful Downtown West Yellowstone. The slushy roads sing sweet songs - go fishing.
    .. The 10-day weather forecast is promising and should allow for a variety of bugs on the creeks and streams of the Madison River and Gallatin River drainage's.

    .. Put on your trifocals, augment them with some clip-on magnifiers and tie on a pair of 18 - 20 nymphs: fish the deepest and darkest runs.
    The slicks at 9-mile Hole, the currently, not-so-broad sweep, at Horseshoe Bend, the first tailout and bend in National Park Meadow, and the head of the long riffle below Gibbon Falls are good bets for feeding giants.

    .. If the little nymphs don't work, try the same-sized midge cluster. If that is also a failure, resort to hand grenades in the form of Woolly Buggers, Dark Spruce Flies, or even a giant Soft Hackle.
    .. The neighbors were out early this morning and found good fish in National Park Meadows on the Madison River, The Firehole River at the base of Firehole Falls, and bottom of the Gibbon River in National Park Meadows.
    Here's a video of the morning - Full Report Later.
