Going Fishing In Wyoming?

This photo was sent to me by Frank Johnson, famous Big Horn River Guide, showing the snow-pack in the mountains. The snow-fall was 250% of average. There has been lots of low-land flooding due to heavy rains of 7"-10" in just a few days. This is an area which gets 14"-15" annual rainfall.Frank says, "The Big Horn is running at 14,000 cfs, which is the highest it has been since the dam was built in 1968. The flows will increase over the next couple of weeks. We are very concerned about more serious flooding and damage." Hang on. It'll be a wild ride in the Hyde.
