    Notes From The Far Side

    SELDOM VISITED
    Should Do It More
    oh to fish it now !!
    FLY OVER
    -------
    ..On a lark, (it happens about this time each year,) we buzzed over to the far reaches of Yellowstone National Park.
    .. The Springtime bluster followed us for two days. It was typically "Springtime in the Rockies."
    BLUSTER ON THE LAMAR RIVER
    .. The bears are out in force and the Lamar River is at perfect fishing flow - a bit cold but beautiful. Runoff is just starting but the water is still clear and twinkly. It will be far different on May 27, 2017.
    .. The road from Gardiner to Silver Gate is open all year. In our youth we would visit in Winter and sled off into the wilderness. No such beans now. But, a Springtime jaunt is equally rewarding.
    SPRING AT BUFFALO RANCH
    .. We get to see the Lamar River Valley, look at the river and see the exuberance of the wildlife. It's not as fine as the Fall but it gets us off the mountain.
    .. We also take this opportunity to visit the premier fly shop at the north entrance to the park.
    .. This year Parks' Fly Shop has outdone themselves with their seasonal prognostication. Their blog is notable for timely and accurate reporting throughout the season.
    .. If you plan to visit Yellowstone National Park for a fishing soiree this coming summer check out the current, (and of course future,) reports.
    .. PARKS' FLY SHOP GENERAL FISHING REPORT is well worth a click. Do it now.

    .. Up late today after the journey. Still buzzing and thinking. Coffee for sure. Breakfast maybe.
