September 23, 2017: After breakfast with the group, my dad and I headed up to the Firehole. We started just below Fountain Flats. I caught 5-10 small bows and browns high sticking through the fast water. We then headed up to Ferry Falls and I showed my dad a really good spot. The fish were rising like crazy, and a hatch of caddis hit the water. My dad was able to get a nice brown to hand
on a caddis, plus a nice rainbow. I caught a good bunch of fish. We then drove down to $3 bridge. We stopped at Slide Inn on the way, and were warned of tough fishing conditions. It proved true. The wind was bad, no bugs, and we left after about an hour. We headed to the Grizzly for a beer, and went back to West Yellowstone for dinner.
