    The Bugs Will Kill You


    IT'S HARDLY WORTH THE WALK
    Poo Poo On This Willow Marsh
    .. We've spoken of Duck Creek before. We visited it again. Drive to the end of the access road, (shown above,) park and walk a bit to the water. The bugs are horrific. The fish are small. Even now the meadow is spongy and mucky. The fishing is so poor that we're gong back tomorrow just to make sure it was that bad. Avoid this water at all costs.
    .. As the waxing moon shines brighter over the next few nights we suspect that the fishing in the evening along the Madison River will become so poor that we will have to verify it's horrid state for ourselves. Avoid the heavy caddis hatch and have an early dinner. Many of the restaurants in West Yellowstone serve Chablis - you'll enjoy it.
    .. Gneiss Creek is even worse. But it is a gneiss walk, (shown below.)
    .. P.S. There are two grizzly bears in the meadow where the Fan Creek Trail leaves the Fawn Pass Trail.
    .. By all means, fishers should loudly sing ribald songs and carry their bear spray.
    Don't just have it:
    CARRY IT ,
    IN YOUR HAND!
