Gary David Blount’s Rocky Mountain Fishing Journals: Perpetual Wild Trout Recapture Angling Journal “A Public Fisheries Project” The purpose of this: Perpetual Wild Trout Recapture Angling Journal “A Public Fisheries Project” is to be the initial public Social Media generated “Wild Trout Fisheries” data base site to monitor and publish the variable changes in our “Wild Trout” fisheries for Perpetuity”. This is an invitation for you, your friends or your fishing club to participate in conducting recaptures: “Angling Day’s” published in all of Gary David Blount Rocky Mountain Fishing Journals.

This Perpetual cursory research projects objective is to ascertain skilled or professional anglers at [email protected] and have them return to each body of water on the precise date, geographic location and time period fished contained in every one of my Rocky Mountain Fishing Journals. Each ascertain skilled or professional angler will document their “Angler Day” using the same format I used in each one of my Rocky Mountain Fishing Journals along with their “Angler Day” photographs in “JPEG” format. Each skilled or professional anglers “Angling Day” written documentation and photographs will be e-mailed to [email protected] and I will publish them in Gary David Blount “Yearly” Perpetual Rocky Mountain Fishing Journal.

Introduction The Yellowstone River within Yellowstone National Park is the world’s best Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout fishery. The Yellowstone River within the park can be divided into three-distinctive sections. The headwaters of the Yellowstone River begin on the east side of the Continental Divide from the Shoshone Mountain Range of Wyoming. The Yellowstone River flows northerly into Yellowstone Lake, elevation 7,733-feet. Yellowstone Lake is the largest lake at this elevation on the continent. The mid-section of the Yellowstone River, which flows out of Yellowstone Lake downstream to the Upper Falls of the Yellowstone River lies the world renown section of the Yellowstone River where hundreds of people flock to on July 15th “Opening Day” every year. The lower section, below the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River flows through the Canyon of the Yellowstone downstream to the Yellowstone National Park Boundary, by the town of Gardner, Montana is probably the least fished section of the Yellowstone River. The fishing seasons opens July 15th every year which allows the Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout Brood Stock to spawn and gives the Yellowstone Cutthroat Fry time to emerge from the redds before the wade fishermen can step on them. The headwaters and mid-section of the Yellowstone River are the major spawning areas for the Yellowstone Lake Cutthroat Trout Fishery. The Yellowstone River is a premiere dry fly fishing river with prolific hatches of May Flies: Early Blue-Winged Olive (Baetis tricaudatus), Late Blue-Winged Olive (Baetis parvus), Little Western Blue-Winged Olive (Ephemerella margarita), Western Green Drake (Drunella grandis), Pale Morning Dun (Ephemerella inermis and Ephemerella infrequens) and Small Western Green Drake (Ephemerella flavilinea); Stone Flies: Salmon Fly (Pteronarcys californica), Western Big Golden Stone Fly (Calineuria californica), Western Medium Golden Brown Stone Fly (Isoperla sp.) and Little Yellow Stone Fly (Alloperla pallidula); Caddis: Green Sedge (Ryacophila sp.), Little Tan Short Horn Sedge (Glossosoma sp.), Spotted Sedge (Hydropsyche sp.) and Giant Orange Sedge (Dicosmoecus sp.).
