IT'S OPEN NOW
little bugs are prolific
|WALLPAPER: THE WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY|
|TRY THIS FLAVOR|
.. Right now, (and for the next few days,) everything is in place. Head hunters of the runner denomination, faithful fishers of the surface, disciples of the flymph, and double nymph & bobber folks, all can be satisfied on the west side rivers.
.. The Firehhole River is giving forth with prolific hatches of a couple of kinds of small mayflies, (check with your favorite feather merchant for the Latin.) Presentation, size, and silhouette are keys to sore wrists and a multitude of hero photos right now. As to flies: the flavor of the month and others will do just fine.
|MY WHAT LONG LEGS YOU HAVE|
.. Ugly flies with obnoxious legs, red rubber bands, woolly buggers, and leaches are dragging in the pudgy fish from Hebgen Reservoir.
.. Many fish in 12" to 16" range also are being taken. Some are resident fish, some are precocious migrants. Whatever the case, they are willing and hungry.
|MORE LEGS AND HACKLES|
.. Beyond the Junction Pools and clear to the falls, the Gibbon River is seeing activity by the fish and fishers reminiscent of the corybantic days of the 50's and 60's.
.. Reports, (and cell phone photos,) for this stretch of river suggest that the flymph and indigenous bugs are the keys to constant catching. Stonefly nymphs of all stripes and colors, (in generous sizes,) are raking in the Browns, (and Rainbows.)
|THE FUR BALL IS A SUCCESS|
.. No hoppers have been reported for a week or two but, a drowned hopper is still taking good fish in the deep riffles.
.. Given the current conditions and mood of the trout it is possible to fish all day and continue to catch fish. A hearty breakfast will carry the dedicated clear through to an early dinner. Back at it in time for the late day frenzy. Have at it!
