    Lookin' Good

    NEW LOOK FOR "OLD TIMEY" BLOG
    Photos 'POP' - Info Sterling
    Brief Yellowstone Report Included Below
    .. FLY TIMES has settled into a new look that sharpens the photos, enhances the visitation experience, and looks kinda' "OLD TIMEY." Nice Job. Click on over and gorge yourself on fine flies, arcane information, hints of fish, and news of spawning results, (human and piscene.)
    .. A recent post suggests that the Wenatchee River should be open for Steelhead fishing. Maybe the "Iron Bridge Run" will be productive this year.
    .. Speaking of spawn; John Montana over at Carp On The Fly has a delightful picture of his daughter holding the "Carp Anglers Group Big Fish Award for the 2007 Fly Fishing Category." Great accomplishment - nice award too.
    .. Sunshine for a day or two should improve afternoon and evening caddis hatches on the streams of the Madison River drainage. This week may be the last for salubrious weather as Mother Nature gathers herself for a bit of snow and hail. The caddis are 'where you find them,' and a bit of hunting will deliver good fishing. Should you be lucky enough to find the dusty things in your ears; you know where to fish.
    .. The Lake Run Fish have finally moved out of National Park Meadows on the Gibbon River. The sparse nature of this year's run will make catching these logs a bit tougher than in recent years past. Good catching has been reported from the swift runs just above Tuff Cliff. Walk through the forested meadow to the water and fish the dark spots by the rocks and the undercut banks - the shade is your friend in this stretch. Small white Zonkers, (8 - 12,) and Yellow Stonefly Nymphs may be the secret to success in this stretch.
    .. Need a Brookie fix? Obsidian Creek is almost totally abandoned this time of year. On a day full of sunshine it's possible to take your 3-weight for a walk and catch dozens of eager Brook Trout in full fall spawning colors. A handful of size 10 - 14 attractors will do the trick here.
    .. The guys at Parks' Fly Shop have given away one of the area's great Fall secrets. Go South young fisher, try the meadows below the road when fishing down from Lewis Lake; not-so-small, and larger fish are awaiting your presence. The plunge pool below the falls is getting some attention too. Nice call guys!
    .. The November 3, 2007 "Drop Dead In The Park Day" is fast approaching. In its honor we offer the following as the inevitable result of the end of season party.
