5/19/11 – I don’t have much of a Friday Update for you. The river is high top to bottom. 16,000CFS at Bingham, 20,000CFS at Madison. Just plain high.
Ponds are producing. Alewives are here. A few stripers have been caught.
Heading for Grand Lake Stream in the morning. It’s running over 1,200CFS. Guess I’ll be using my Spey and spending time on the lake.
One thing I found out while packing the wet section of my gear bag is that the new “Over-Boot Stud Protectors” or Crocs for boots don’t take up a lot of extra room when you’re packing up. I just slipped them over my boots and they fit just fine.
I’ll let you know how GLS was when I get back next week. Maybe we’ll have hatches down here by then. The violets are up on the lawn and if that’s the case Hendricksons aren’t far behind.
