    A Lowland Migration

    NEIGHBORS FLEEING
    Runoff Increasing
    green up progressing
    WALLPAPER:  GREEN UP
    -------
    .. Way down yonder on the lowland Madison River, just as the runoff color becomes marginal, BWO's, Caddis, and Midges are frolicking like mad. It must be the weather.
    .. This note has to be brief. Soon the rate of discharge and the color will turn the fishing to somewhere between normal & hit and miss.
    CDC BWO   =   JUST RIGHT
    .. Right now is prime catching time from Reynold's Pass all the way to Ennis, Montana. Best get your catch on and follow our neighbors to the Madison River.
    .. Quake Lake to Lyon's is BWO country: not too big and not too small, (not too fat and not too thin,)  this is an A.M. thing right now, but not too early, (and not too late.)
    .. All day for midges and stonefly nymphs. And, as we saw last week, the caddis are on time in the afternoon.
    -----
    .. Into the fray go the neighbors. We'll follow with a modicum of dignity = somewhat slothfully and wade some around the pass this afternoon.
