    By The Bye

    NOW IT'S THE GIBBON
    Enough To Break The Gauge
    .. So sorry to report that the Gibbon River is now in record discharge territory. The color is not as bad as yesterday, but the visibility is still pretty damn poor.
    .. The broken gauge on the Madison River is still not fixed, and it's last recorded values show the line on the graph headed north!
    .. The bottoms at 7-mile bridge are a quagmire, and the rest of the valley is just a mess. We'll not say it's blown - but it's blown!
    .. The Little Firehole River produced fish yesterday, (cold and quick as it is,) and the Firehole River along the Lone Star Geyser Trail was rewarding to the few fishers, (neighbors included,) who walked past the first bridge. A green-body, or purple-body soft hackle in the monstrous sizes seems to be the ticket - try 4, 6, or 8.
