Because of the Berry fire flaring up again along the John D. Rockefeller Memorial Parkway between Grand Teton and Yellowstone Parks, the south entrance road has been closed again. Slough Creek campground and surroundings remain closed because of the Buffalo fire. When we receive info on these areas re-opening we will post such here. The Norris Junction-Mammoth Hot Springs Road will re-open 7 AM, October 7th.
With respect to fishing, cooler weather means the Firehole River is offering improving conditions for fishing. Patterns for BWOs and caddis life cycle phases along with those for terrestrial insects will bring action. Hebgen Lake browns and rainbows are showing up in the Madison River, so streamer and large soft hackled patterns should be in the fly box. On most other streams terrestrial insect patterns will bring best chances for action until a killing frost happens.
