Dear angling friend:

It's been a long time since I composed a newsletter and I do apologize for the lapse but I had to complete a revision of the Rocky Mountain Berry Book.

Let me cover the history aspects first. In 2011 we saw astounding snow pack levels, torrential rains, and mind-boggling floods. Ft. Smith was cut off from the outside world for a couple of days due to the flooding of Rotten Grass Creek and Lodge Grass Creek and the Little Big Horn. The flows in the Bighorn River reached 15,500 cfs during July.
