First time angler with an incidental bull on a stone nymph. Nice!

Each year during the run-off season we get a couple patches of cool weather that will provide windows of opportunity on our freestone rivers.  We just had a window. It’s now pouring down rain and the window has closed, but it was nice to get out on our local river and scoop a couple big ones.  Run-off is not over. Will we get another window soon? When will the Flathead come in this year? Salmon flies on the  Blackfoot by mid June? Hard to say….we can use all our perfect rules of measure to formulate a guess, but only Mother Nature knows.
