Rocky Mountain Fishing Journals:
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. These Rocky Mountain Fishing Journals encompass 35-years and contain over 1,500 - “Angling Day’s” documenting the daily “Wild Trout” catch rates, water temperature, water level, water turbidity, air temperature, weather conditions, daily hatches, stomach analysis from “Wild Trout” landed, “GDB” Custom Flies fished, fly fishing presentations, trout species, trout lengths and geographic location on over 35-different bodies of water in Montana, Wyoming, Yellowstone National Park, Idaho and Washington.
This Perpetual cursory research projects objective is to ascertain skilled or professional anglers at firstname.lastname@example.org 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@example.com and I will publish them in Gary David Blount “Yearly” Perpetual Rocky Mountain Fishing Journal.

The Yellowstone Drainage supports the largest inland population of native Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout on Earth. The Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout is considered a shared resource in Yellowstone Lake: Grizzly Bears, Black Bears, Bald Eagles Golden Eagles, Pelicans, Osprey, Great Blue Herons, Kingfishers, Gulls, Grebes, Terns, Loons, Mergansers, Mink, Otters, Wolves and Coyotes prey upon Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout. In the Yellowstone drainage 200,000-pounds of Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout are eaten each year by these animals and birds.
Yellowstone Lake is the largest fresh water lake in the United States above 7,000-feet, it’s altitude is 7,733-feet above sea level. The Yellowstone Lake encompasses 136 square miles, it is 20-miles long, 14-miles wide and has 110-miles of shoreline. Yellowstone Lake is 320-feet deep at its deepest point. The average depth is 139-feet. Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout generally inhabit the upper 60-feet because their food source rarely occurs below that depth. The average surface temperature in August is 60 degrees Fahrenheit; the bottom the temperature never rises above 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The serenity of Yellowstone Lake can suddenly change with afternoon thunderstorms and their accompanying winds. These winds can routinely produce 3-foot waves or larger within minutes on Yellowstone Lake. With water temperatures averaging 41 degrees Fahrenheit you can develop hypothermia quickly if your vessel capsizes.
Fishing season in Yellowstone Lake opens June 15th each year, usually! There are 124-tributaries the Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout use for spawning including the largest tributary, the Yellowstone River. These spawning tributaries open July 15th each year, however some remain closed all year. The use of all lead fishing tackle is band; fisherman must use Non-Toxic alternative products.
The West Thumb geyser basin area has intense heat in the lake sediments, which indicate a shallow thermal system underlying this more recent caldera. If the lake level should fall just a few feet, an immense steam (hydrothermal) explosion could occur here. Mary Bay and Indian Pond now show evidence of these craters.
