...has bumped up from a benign 300 cfs to a ripping 600 in past week or so...how high it will get in next couple weeks is of course more than I know. Anyway last week the Beav was absolutely on fire...today?..not so hot. I had two raw rookies, like in never even held a fishin pole before. Tried to talk 'em outta doing the spin fishin thing but no dice. So armed with a couple dozen Rooster Tails off we went.
None of us, especially this ol' boy expected much, tough conditions (cloudless sky, river risin and all) and we didn't get much but... We didn't get skunked, guide escaped unscathed, hardly lost a lure and had the by god river all to ourselves...seems word on street is big flies are poppin up to the Big Hole. I think we only landed 6 fish, all typical fat Beav browns had at least as many more chances...all in all a pretty good day though don't spread it round the ol boy has now lowered his self to guidin hardware junkies...just kiddin.
