    This Morning's Snow

    WASN'T AS BAD AS YESTERDAY
    A Bit More Tomorrow
    madison river becomes a lake

    .. Well, the snows were warm and wet. Even the higher country received a mixture of snow and rain. Melting of the current snow pack has not appreciably slowed.
    .. From National Park Meadows, downstream to 7-mile Bridge the Madison River meadows are under water. Fish are in the grass and the most beautiful shade of reddish-brown is the prevalent color of the water.
    .. The Gibbon River in the canyon is a raging torrent. The Firehole River is very high but the color and visibility remain fishable. Nez Perce Creek is deep and backed-up by the overflowing Firehole River.
    .. For real time information over the next two days we suggest that you contact the fly shops listed in the sidebar. The clearest water and most approachable portions of the rivers are changing by the hour.
    .. And please don't forget to get your Yellowstone National Park fishing permit.
    .. It's raining now: we just may sleep in on Saturday morning.
