“The world is in soft focus. Wind blows the snow sideways. Clouds cling low to the nearby hills. Yet to the east, the Absaroka Mountains rise as startling and steep as the hair on a mad dog’s back.” Here’s a fine article by Brett French about the history and legend of Montana’s Paradise Valley Spring Creeks: Depuy’s, Armstrong/O’Hair’s and Nelson’s. In the Billings Gazette.
If you’re thinking of fishing the spring creeks this year, here’s an excellent primer on midge fishing by Brant Oswald.
