Packed up the truck and headed over to Yellowstone this morning. No way to get on the ice, all water around the shore. Checked out by the dike, below the dairy bar, and the middle boat launch. Rain last night really did a number.
I have not been there since last weekend. Then there was 14” everywhere I was. One of our other drivers was over that way on his run on Tuesday I think. He said there was water over the road at the bridge in Argyle. Water was already dirty to start with, with the added run off it is probably going to look like chocolate milk. I think the old girl is done for the season. Do what I’m doing, spend your weekend at the fishing Expo, and start getting geared up for open water.
MOON PHASE (1%)
Went out late morning (2-12-18) and set up on a crib near the dairy bar with waxies and crappie/fathead minnows. Quickly hit 4 nice gills...then all action died. Punched some holes to hop and found a nearby crib where I quickly nabbed 6 more (all 7-8") before it died again. Hole-hopped and ended up with 16 gills. Nothing hit my shiner on a tipup, and all the gills hit waxies.
Tight lines to all!
