As we approach the end of May I'm beginning to get excited for the upcoming fishing season. The runoff appears to be in full swing around here and I suspect that fishing will be good in another few weeks. I've spent some time hiking with Jamie lately. Now, as some of you might know, I'm not much of a hiker. However, when there's a lake that holds trout involved, I can be persuaded to walk distances without complaining. Taggart lake in the Tetons is a favorite of mine for a hike mixed in with a little fishing. I managed to catch a couple nice fish during our outing and also found time to do a little exploring.
We were also fortunate to see a few Grizzly bears the other night in GTNP. Locally celebrity, Grizzly mama 610 has been frequenting the oxbow/ dam area in the park with her cubs. Unfortunately, the bears managed to evade most photographers by keeping to the willow bushes. We did manage a couple of long distance pictures.
