We’ve had a few calls about mud today since it rained hard last night in Bozeman.  So far so good… the Lamar continues to flow up and down so you can expect to see the same type of clarity we’ve been having.  The webcam above Yankee Jim is currently showing that “green is good” water, we’ll be keeping an eye on it just in case and we also have some great shuttle drivers that keep us posted with plugs.  For now the coast is clear.  This weekend is your last chance to get Salmonflies from Gardiner to Point of Rocks.  The Bird float has been on fire lately with streamers and nymph rigs, with lots of 18-20″ browns paying attention.  Through town and down low is still big water and remains an “A” team only game, meaning great rowers and good sticks.  The party-time boat float should be between Springdale and Big Timber today if you there are any pleasure floaters that would like to join in the fun, just keep in mind that this year the water is huge and to take the proper precautions.   CFS at Carter’s is finally below 10,000 today.  Usually we don’t recommend floating from Pine down until the river hits 8,000 CFS.
