Yellowstone Park 7-2-2011

We walked into Shoshone Lake down the DeLacey trail yesterday packing float tubes to get out to weed beds where browns and juvenile mackinaw (macks) hang out.  Never have seen so much snow on the trail and water in Delacey Creek.  The first mile of trail is nearly half snow covered with drift remnants up to three feet deep. But trail is passable with a bit of blowdown. We got onto the lake and pitched wooly bugger types on full-sink lines and got into plenty of  macks ranging 17-22 inches.   Lake appeared to be in the turnover process as murky water prevented us from locating weed beds at about twenty foot depth, but it didn’t matter as fish seemed scattered all over resulting in hits almost everywhere except very near shoreline.  Nearly all Park streams remain high with several days of current warm weather needed to finish run off.   Lots of folks fishing the high and clear Firehole River. The Ashton-Flagg road remains closed form the Idaho side.
