    Snow Down

    THIN WATER IN
    SECRET CREEKS
    We Need Some More H2O
    think snow
    -------
    .. The snow pack is running at about 80-85% of the average in the Madison and Gallatin drainages.
    .. The forecast is not encouraging. The cool weather has set in a bit early. It's a dead-still 40 below this morning. Pray for less high pressure and more moist air.
    .. Yesterday at noon it was on the cold side of 10 below. We didn't fish the Secret Brook Trout Creek.
    .. It was a poignantly sad site. There were dimples everywhere. The midges were thick in the midday light. The fish didn't hide from us. They hung at the surface and sipped the food. The water was so low and cold it would have been a crime to exhaust the little darlings. We took some snapshots instead.
