After settling into camp and watching the sunset, the group was quick to get into bed, anticipation hight for the next day. After breakfast, we loaded up the group and went to a local fly shop to get some intel on what was working on the local rivers. From there the group headed to the upper Madison for their first day of fishing. The guys were clearer excited - we quickly rigged our rods and got in the water. The overcast weather allowed for some cooler temperatures and the kids managed to land many nice fish. After a very fulfilling day, we headed back to base camp for a Lillard staple, a game of ultimate frisbee. We had a tasty dinner of Buffalo Mac (another Lillard staple); after a day on the water and some exercise, the guys were worn out and ready to get to sleep.
The next morning, we packed up and moved our camp to the Raynolds' Pass Fishing Access and the campground on the upper Madison. The kids were big fans of this spot as there was great fishing right in front of camp. We fished here all evening and most of the next morning and it proved to be productive. That evening we took the group swimming at Ennis lake and packed up for our upcoming trip to the Bighorn.
After a good night's rest, we loaded up the fleet of rafts and made the drive to Cottonwood Camps on the Bighorn. We were able to get on the river that evening and had a great float - everyone caught fish. We'll spend some more time on the Bighorn - the fishing is good and the guys are happy.
Until next time,
The guide crew
