The Fire continues to burn on the north and east slope. it is now over 50% contained at the last report.
winds pushed it back on to it's self Wednesday and Thursday helping to control it.
with higher winds yesterday and this morning it has gained some more ground, however it is below the rim now in very rocky terrain making it nearly impossible to fight.
What dose this mean for the fishing... all roads leading up on the east and north end slopes are closed,
soooo No access to the Fishcreek and Beaver dam areas or any lakes on the Donkey Coleman Roads.
if your favorite place to fish is the east end you are out of luck. pray for rain I guess... because this truly sucks...
on a side note the Fremont below highway 12 continues to fish decent with some nice 14 to 16 inch browns, the caddis fly hatch is in full swing and the fish are keying in on them in the evenings through out the lower Fremont.
U.M. creek also continues to fish fair... the cutthroat have moved back in to the runs and undercut banks, using a dry dropper system works well.
Seven Mile Creek also continues to fish well with a dry dropper set up. and there are reports that lakecreek has been producing some nice little brookies as well.
Thousand Lakes Mtn.
The fishing remains good mostly for planter rainbows at in the soloman basin area and round lake with some nicer Brook trout being caught on Meeks and Neffs.
