    Up To 500

    SWARM GOING STRONG
    Not unusual Yet
    fishing; pretty good
    THE LATEST SWARM MAP
    -------
    .. Seismologists at the University of Utah note that our current extensive earthquake swarm is a bit unusual but no cause for worry, [LINK-EQ.]   We're up to 500 over the last couple of weeks.
    .. Back in 1985 there was a swarm of more than 3,000 temblors over a three month period. In 2010 we saw 2,000 shakers in about three weeks. Folks don't much talk about them because they don't feel them. That's that !!
    .. Same to report once again. Bright sun most of the day is followed by overcast and widely scattered afternoon and evening thunder showers.
    TRY IT -  LIKE IT
    .. The usual suspects are being flung through the air - and then some.
    .. Soft hackles are working on the Firehole River, (yawn.) The same, plus caddis on the Madison River, (big yawn.)
    .. Up at the Fan Creek Meadows on the Gallatin River there are finally some visitors = even catching fish.
    SELDOM SEEN HEREABOUTS
    .. We slogged through the thick willows up in the meadows of Bacon Rind Creek.
    .. The traffic was slight on the dusty track and the trails are not yet worn down to the 'easy' stage.
    .. Scared several fish clean out of their scales.
    .. Danced with and captured a monster ten-incher. Bless it's air bladder, it landed itself by jumping on the grassy bank. It took a pretty messy Sierra Bright Dot.
    -----
    .. The neighbors have this strange notion that entering the park early today might be a clever tactic. Off we go - they have a mission to perform.
