Wow!  Now this is summer-like.... too bad it's not going to last.  Rest of the week looks crappy!  20 degrees cooler and rain.  Ugh.  River's going to get really big though in a hurry.

Since Saturday, it's been the best 3 days of weather we've had all spring and early summer combined.  Finally, sunny and almost 80!  Winds have behaved as well.  Talk about nice.  What's it done for the river?  She's getting big!  Yeehaw!  Going to see 20 grand possibly later today or tomorrow.  Bad news, it's supposed to turn rainy and nasty the rest of the week.

Clarity on the Upper, upper has greatly improved over the past couple days as it's been definitely cooler out and Cabing Creek, Beaver Creek are not throwing as much junk in at all.  West Fork still the main culprit but it seems to have abated as well.  The walk section is in really good shape right now.  The float area below the West Fork is coming on as well.  Both areas it's nymphing san juans, rubberleg stones in conjunction with smaller caddis and mayfly beadheads behind.  Streamers are good choices as well if you just don't want to watch the indicators...

Right back up!  While not super bright sun and hot, what we have had the past couple days has the river turned right back around and blowing out once again.  Please let this be the real deal!

Memorial Day.  Typical for Montana!  It's been snowing up in the mountains.  Parts of Yellowstone Park got as much as 2 feet!  Raining and pretty snotty down here in the valley.  Another one of those days that if you are out, having a fire in the woodstove makes for a bit more comfortable afternoon.  As it has been seemingly all spring, look for baetis to be present and at times intense in the late afternoon.
