Yes, there are JP. In fact there are many many creeks that come out of the mountains and feed the Bitterroot. But they do not open till the end of May and by then it's less a matter of the water being clear, they will just be raging out of the mountains and these are all generally pretty small creeks many shooting down through rock canyons. But they drop faster than the big rivers and are fun to fish while waiting for the rivers to get into shape. I'll survive...I have for the past 14 seasons here. At least now I know what to expect. I remember my first spring here, I was amazing by big everything got and for how long. It still amazes me.

That didn't make it over the mountains, Fred. But there is some rain in the forecast this week.

Get it while you can, Joe!
