Avoid Hot Water
wise fishers know the tribs
.. Although there have been little bugs on the surface during the cloudy days they have been sporadic and widely dispersed. The caddis on the other hand have been everywhere but not too thick yet.
.. The big water of Nez Perce Creek has already started to drop from the weekend showers and is holding some good fish. Even the skinny water around the picnic area has eager fish and lots of friendly park visitors.
.. We've been threatened with heinous acts of violence if we divulge the current fishy spots on the Madison River. We can say, however, that the waters around the park boundary have local pickumups nearby.
.. Small, (down to size 16 - 18,) caddis are nearly everywhere on both the Madison River and the Firehole River. Some are a dark dusky gray, (almost black,) others are tan and light gray. A double-slipper will bring more fish to hand than a single small bit of fluff.
.. If you haven't had the pleasure of "HIGH SEASON" on the Firehole River, you should be here now, (and for the next couple of weeks.) It's way better than Disney World. And, be sure to bring your PMD & BWO collection: show and tell is a great way to spend the mid-day doldrums.
