Rain is pelting the metal roof of the house, has been on and off since the sun set.

There was a flash a crack, then a rumble – lightning turned to thunder…is it snowing up high?  Shit, I hope so.

The low tonight in West Yellowstone is 16 degrees, a far cry from the summer like temps we have enjoyed for the past week.  I actually started a fire in wood stove, haven’t had to do that much lately.  More time at the vise is needed, but tonight I cranked out BWOs for an upcoming trip to the Missouri River.   I love the black wing for overcast days and the magic hour before dark.

The weather for the weekend and early next week, all over Montana, is calling for rising fish and streamer fishing.  We are headed north and you, where are you going?

Word has it that the flows out of Hebgen may be dropping here in the next few days.  That would be nice since the Madison Range is sitting at 82% of snow pack all the while the flow is sitting at 1290 cfs……just a little high……the 73 year average for today is 758 cfs.

Madison River Flows: 04.26.2012

at West Yellowstone: 992 cfs

below Hebgen: 1290 cfs

Kirby Ranch: 1760 cfs

Varney Bridge: 2490 cfs

below Ennis Lake: 2810 cfs
