DO NOT, repeat, DO NOT try to walk forward with fins on your feet!!
Instead take side-step or walk backward - lessons learned with the cost of pain on my knee!!
I was slightly afraid that this would look me as a poor prey floating on the water and peck me and my tube!
Ennis Lake is producing tremendous insects and their activities right now!!
I found something furiously yet funnily dancing near the water surface. It was a damselfly nymph.
After the photo above was taken, I released it. Then it swam toward back to me and seemed to find me as a standing willow tree or something on which it would eventually hatch!?
Right after, I spotted something huge on the water. By this time, my attention was more into bugs rather than fishing.....
Spruce Moth were also observed. This summer may be the cycle of its peak!!?? - very exciting outlook!!
Beautiful calibaetis spinners!!
Well, hope to report some real fishing report with the float tube any time soon.
But these insect activities really gave me a positive outlook for this summer. Salmonflies and PMD are soon to come!! Then spruce moth cycle!
Oh, the last but not the least, though Yellowstone River is still in the middle of runoff, water level is dropping. Clarity is next..........
