Rain, Rain, Go Away?

I started this post a few days ago but couldn't write anything from my phone and access to the inter-webs has been a challenge for the last few weeks. We just got Internet at the new house so I'll be doing a better job of keeping up on the old blog.
Anyway, it had been raining a ton out here in Central Montana, which has definitely greened things up a lot but more importantly for the fishing side of life, it has brought the rivers up to almost what would be normal. That doesn't mean it will last in the freestones for the entire summer but the reservoirs are getting close to capacity, which means we'll have an almost normal water year on the tail-waters.
As for the Dearborn, it's flowing at the perfect level right now and has cleared up considerably. The window will be short however, as it is crashing hard so if you're going to do it, do it now. I know it's been raining a lot but we could use more for those small streams so don't wish for the rain to go away just yet.
As for the fishing on the Mo; let's just say it's been kind of a roller coaster with the water levels being bumped up from the mid 3,000's to 6,200 cfs in the past few days. It's a good thing overall but it can make for tough conditions. Those fish have to find their way too, so keep on plugging away and they will be there and they will need to eat. On the plus side of things, the higher water and higher temps have brought some PMD's to the surface and fish love PMD's. Check this beautiful buck brown caught by Bob today on an emerging PMD.
 Keep 'em where they live...
