WHILE THE GETTING'S GOOD
Madison Producing: Firehole Too
the elbow brigade is gone
|A DUSTING OF SNOW AND A HEARTY HI-HO RUNNER|
.. With our snows coming in bits and pieces, and the daytime temperatures holding in the 30's and 40's, it's about as good as it gets for catching.
.. There are places to park, there are vacant pools, there are eager fish jumping into the waders of fisher folks, and all is right with the world.
|SPECIMEN CREEK IS VACANT AND INVITING|
.. There were giant brown caddis flies dancing in the afternoon sun yesterday. The sun was brief, the dances were short, and the nose of several fish must have gotten cold as they gently sipped the final offerings of the season.
.. Even the fish in Specimen Creek responded to some splashy presentations of a Scarlet Ibis and a wet March Brown. Oh, if only days like these could last for months, instead of a week.
.. Well then, perhaps it's time for a "sick day," and another recuperative visitation to the healing waters of the neighborhood streams. After all, the countdown has started and there's a bit of weather in the air.
