It's not severe, yet; but, the Yellowstone River is starting to take on some color from snow melt. Our cold weather over the next week should hold it at bay for a while. It looks like spring fishing is going to be upended within the next few weeks, though. :(
No, really...Spring is here. Sure it's a little disconcerting that it still wants to snow every now and then; but, buck up! The sun will return before you know it and fly fishing on the rivers of southwest Montana will be magical once again. Just don't wait too long because the snow melt is just around the corner too.
