This morning I started my first of three days off. Working at Yellowstone National Park for the summer has many obvious perks, including easy access to world class fly fishing waters. Since runoff is keeping many of the local rivers running high and muddy, I hit Lewis Lake, which as of a week and a half ago was still ice covered. I hiked over to the outlet of the lake where the the bottom was gravel and sandbars and perfect holding water for trout. I only caught one fish, but that’s okay… stay tuned for a particularly interesting “encounter” i had last week.
