It's windier than hell around Bozeman today, glad I'm not in a drift boat today. It's been blowing like hell for a few days just about everywhere around here and we're supposed to get some snow. Looking forward to winter for a change.
One of my favorite times of year to fish, just don't do it as often as I'd like. The lower Madison, on a mild winter day, can be as good a place and time to fish as anywhere, ever. There can be some people out there, but if you can work a few buckets well, it usually pays off. As for right now though, most of the browns are in mid spawn and I know myself well enough to know that I have a hard time resisting the temptation to go redd raiding...so I just don't go.
