Today I fished the Yellowstone River with Dennis. The weather was not very good today, some wind and rain were forecast. The Yellowstone is a much larger river than the Boulder so we took Dennis's Drift Boat instead of the raft.

Here's Dennis preparing lunch along the banks of the Yellowstone River.

Today was a travel day. I left Bozeman around 10:30 and drove southwest to Ennis, MT and then to Cameron, MT, which is along the banks of the Madison River.


Sunday, August 8, 2010

During my drive I drove off into some remote areas hoping to photograph some wildlife. I found lot's of things to photograph. Here's a Pronghorn Antelope.

This looks like a Golden Eagle.

A really neat old barn, note the Bald Eagle perched on the roof.

For the next 4 nights I'm staying at the Slide Inn on the banks of the Madison River.


Sunday, August 8, 2010

My cabin is about 30 feet from the river. It's a little rustic, but a beautiful location.


Monday, August 9, 2010

I was scheduled to fish the Madison River on my own today, but the weather was so severe that I decided against it. We had lightning and thunder and rain so heavy that you could barely drive.


Tuesday August 10, 2010

Drove over and fished the Jefferson River with Skinny (aka Stve Mock) of the Slide Inn. We had a very long day today, leaving the SLide Inn at 6:00 am and returning at 8:30 pm.


Tuesday August 10, 2010

Here was our lunch stop for the day. We saw three Mink on the river throughout the day.


Tuesday August 10, 2010

The Jefferson River is a place for Trophy size trout like the one I caught on a streamer today.


Wednesday August 11, 2010

Today Skinny and I fished the Madison River. The Slide Inn is located right on the banks of the Madison River. We were on the river by 6:30 am and returned home at 4:30. It was a fantastic day of fishing streamers again, as well as a few dry flies.


Wednesday August 11, 2010

Today was a day for several Trophy size trout, all caught on a streamer.


Wednesday August 11, 2010

Here's the streamer that caught all the fish today. It's called a "Double Screamer".


Wednesday August 11, 2010

Here was our lunch stop for the day.


Thursday August 12, 2010

I checked out of the Slide Inn in Montana this morning and drove south through Idaho on my way to Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Thursday August 12, 2010

I'm staying in the same condo that I did last year. It's about 10 minutes from downtown.


Thursday August 12, 2010

It has the most beautiful view of the southern end of the Grand Tetons from the back yard as well as the sound of a small creek.


Friday August 13, 2010

Today I went downtown Jackson Hole.


Friday August 13, 2010

I needed to buy a fishing license and pick up some other fishing things.


Friday August 13, 2010

I drove about 25 miles north of town and into the hills to fish a small creek called Crystal Creek. It was a beautiful area, but I found out later that the area was Grizzly country and that there had been 2 deaths recently from bears.


Friday August 13, 2010

This is Crystal Creek. The fishing was great !


Friday August 13, 2010

This is also Bison country.


Friday August 13, 2010

There were 3 Hawks hunting overhead.


Friday August 13, 2010

Look at all the snow still on the Grand Tetons.
