Tough Week

Big Hole 155 cfs Beaverhead 289 cfs

The flows on the river are finally starting to improve after getting down to a paultry 120 cfs. Who knows we might even get to do some fishing in September. Roger has been hitting the Wise River fairly often and has had some great results. His biggest is a 16 inch brown and that’s a big fish for that little stream. Hope the fish bureaucrats don’t find out about it they’ll want to kill it. He has been getting lots of bows in the 12 to 14 inch class and all on dry fly’s.

I took Allie (my newfy) on an emergency trip to the Vet on Monday last which was Labor Day. After some initial tests they put her on a IV along with some antibiotics. She had developed a serious heart murmer and had bacterial toxins in her blood. Yesterday after she had been basically in their ICU for 5 days and after consulting with the Doc. it was painfully evident she would not pull through and I gave the go ahead to put her down. It was one of the toughest things I have had to do for quite some time. The evening walk along the river yesterday was just not the same without her.
