The foul weather of the last 2 days has moved on and it felt once again like a fall day here in SW Montana rather than a mid-winter blizzard. Headed to the lower Madison today and found the fish to be cooperative rather than stubborn. Morning fishing the buckets with worms, sow bugs, and a lot of weight was good. Afternoon crayfish and lighting bugs. Still weeds but not as bad as they were a week or so ago. I had the awesome experience of dealing with an exploding winch strap as I was lowering my boat at Canaday. No better way to start the day than watching your boat go flying down a 20' plastic ramp and water pouring into the boat while knowing that your bilge pump is safe and sound at the office. Made due with a loaner from Peter King of the bozeman angler which actually made the rest of the day go much better.
