    Like An Archer Fish

    BUT AT 1000 YARDS

    -------
    .. There's no better time to abandon fishing the west side streams in Yellowstone National Park than right now.
    ANT
    .. The Gallatin River and the upper Firehole River are still barely worth fishing.
    .. Small bits of the upper Gibbon River and most of Notellum Creek are swarming with active trouts.
    .. Save for the earliest morning and latest afternoon fishing, river fishing is a terrestrial game. The creepies and crawlies are doing well in this warm spell.
    GULP THIS
    .. If you have the wherewithal to make it to Hebgen Reservoir before the wind -- do it!
    .. We'll be headed to the hottest part of the High Plains to challenge the vagaries of wind, mirage, distance and weather. It's a mental failing on our part.
    -----
    .. It's a drive of heroic proportions and we'll need three or four lunches to make it. Ta Ta.
