    Still Good Fishin'

    NOT IN YELLOWSTONE
    Just Up The Road A Bit
    probably have to walk 300 yards
    Confluence of Notellum and X-Creek Rivers
    -------
    .. The visiting anglers of Yellowstone National Park have evacuated our village. The neighbors are of mixed minds. The motel occupancy rate is way down. If you like easy catching in cool crisp weather now is the time to visit.
    Shop Vac
    .. There are large submarines in the Madison River - not in the park. There are submarines in Grayling Creek - not in the park. There are submarines in Duck Creek - not in the park. There are enormous fish Between the Lakes - and lots of elbows.
    .. There are other good spots, (if you enjoy catching,) to be visited. Just ask the local  feather merchants. Or skulk around the pubs at pizza time. Sit near groups of folks with arms flailing and producing wild enigmatic gestures. Listen carefully.
    .. You can select the pub based on the number of grungy, mud covered pickumup trucks with local tags.  They appear just after sundown and clutter the parking lots. This seems to be a mostly Ford and Toyota village so look for the blue ones.
