    More Precip

    IT'S VERY WET OUT THERE
    New Mud Plug

    -------
    .. This has got to be quick. The bugs are loving the rain. The fishers are loving the rain. The rivers are a lovely color and getting deeper.
    ==> Madison Lake at 7-mile bridge is growing.
    ==> Biscuit Lake is growing.
    ==> The Gallatin River is a slurry like never seen before.
    ==> Trail to Grebe Lake is mud soup.
    ==> Cabin Creek pushed it's mud plug into the Madison River: raised water 2 feet.
    ==> Firehole River sets another discharge record.
    ==> Gibbon River now blown with a new discharge record.
    ==> Gibbon Lake in National Park Meadows is forming at the bridge due to hydraulic damning.
    ==> Bison on road seeking relief.
    ==> Gawker blocks abound.
    ==> Construction zone at the Gibbon Bridge in need of massive cleanup.
    ==> More rain forecast: daily drizzle, broken clouds, some sun, afternoon thunder showers - yum yum!
    .. Advice: #1] tie some flies, #2] throw another log on the fire, #3] get out the rain gear, fish deep, tell stories, wait for the bugs, pretend that you enjoy it.
