*UPDATE* Grey Reef Reservoir is turning green up near The Reef Fly Shop (vast improvement over the red from yesterday). It still has a ways to go before it is clear. Alcova received less than an inch of snow last night and that is disappearing quickly with the beautiful day. We know a lot of folks are planning on a weekend assault of the reef so we will keep you up to date. We have availability on Saturday so give a shout if you want to book a guide.
Trent, Seth and I left Casper yesterday around noon on our way to Billings where we met with the Magic City Fly Fishers. What an impressive organization! They even have an after school program to teach kids fly tying and it is very popular. What a way to kindle the fire early?! Thanks to all the folks who attended it was a great turnout. We made it back to Casper at around 1:30AM as roads were not very fun on the way home. This AM we have several inches of snow on the ground but it is fading fast. Hope to get a water conditions update but as of yesterday the afterbay (Grey Reef Reservoir) was a mess as was the river. It *should* clear quickly. Hopefully, in time for a beautiful weekend of calm and mid 50s.
