Sneak Window on the Stone

We have a surprise window of opportunity on the Yellowstone. The CFS dropped significantly, albeit back on the rise a bit today.

Clarity Report

Clarity 8/26 6:25AM The Yellowstone looks good to go today. We did have some rain in Livingston last night but it doesn’t not appear to have rained in the Park looking at the CFS graphs. The tiger stripes of mud should be down low now, so unless you are floating in the Big Timber area…
