    Little Rain: Little Snow - Perfect !



    .. Just enough rain to keep the streams running cool, just enough snow to remind us it's fall, just enough fish to keep us happy - NOT TOO BAD.
    .. The neighbors have threatened us with no grog for a week if we reveal the best fishing spots in the neighborhood. With that sentiment in mind we can only say: don't fish the following:
    o Firehole River,
    o Campanula Creek,
    o Richards Creek,
    o Gneiss Creek,
    o Indian Creek,
    o Spring Creek,
    o Yellowstone Creek.

    .. Other (not to be revealed here,) creeks and lakes in the neighborhood are providing catching as good as it gets. Attractors are working when there are no hatches: midges when there are.
    .. Big nymphs and assorted rubber legs creations are just fine all day long. The holding water for lake-run fish can be probed with dark and light streamers with equal effectiveness.
    -------
    .. The residual, seasonal carcasses & gut piles have concentrated the Grizzlies on the flats. Carry in your hand, (NOT IN YOUR BACK PACK OR HOLSTER,) a large canister of bear spray and loudly sing ribald songs. The hunters won't like it, but you won't surprise the bears.
    .. There are also some black bears along the South Fork of the Mdison River, and a few others scattered on the slopes around the periphery of the Hebgen Basin . . . Be alert.
