The good news is that the waterways in Montana, Wyoming and Idaho are finally beginning to look like trout streams again. As I write this the Yellowstone River at Livingston, Montana is approaching 9,000 cfs, down from its high point in late June of 36,000 cfs. However, even at its current rate of flow it is still about 5,000 cfs above what would be considered normal at this time of the year. This is true of all the waterways in the area.
