For those of you who have not been to the InciWeb site for fire info here is the LINK. While many residents are still under mandatory evacuation orders, certain areas are opening back up. As things are changing by the hour, check with the InciWeb site or the Idaho Mountain Express for updates. Today is the least smoky day in awhile in Hailey probably due to the wind out of the south. This fire is undoubtedly an economic firestorm for this valley which relies on August as one of the two or three busiest months of the year here.
On the fishing front, now is the time to fish Silver Creek as it is the least crowded it will likely ever be in August and the fire activity is all to the north and north west.
