    While The Gettin's Gud

    CAN IT BE OVER SO SOON ?
    Temps & Levels High
    do not tarry !
    -------
    .. Despite our fondest wishes for a protracted "HIGH SEASON" on the Firehole River, the good snow-pack and high discharge rates have not kept the temperature of the water down. The river is already showing temperature spikes to 73° F along with discharge rates at about 200 cfs above daily recorded maximums. {LINK}
    .. Happily, bug activity is stupendous and those folks that need to see their fly in order to catch a fish are doing dances of jubilation. Get here now - or - get caught in the 'listless fish & river' days of summer.
    .. We're off to the park. The Madison River is probably a better bet, (the Gibbon River and Nez Perce Creek too.) Report and wailing to follow.
